And now the site is down, possibly all week, following a total hard drive crash. Don Barrett draws every day on his rich archive of Los Angeles radio facts and lore, and that's what he has lost. Franklin Avenue has details. I told a UCLA class recently that if the L.A. Observed archives ever become corrupted, I'm out. A fair amount of the traffic here searches the old stuff, and I use the archives all the time. Barrett's splash page is still online and he hopes to resume posting later this week.
