Killer King on KCRW

Tonight's Which Way, L.A.? with Warren Olney looks at the issues of race and class in the fight over King-Drew Medical Center. Elected county Supervisors Zev Yaroslavsky and Yvonne Brathwaite Burke call in, but apparently civil rights attorney Connie Rice steals the show. It airs at 7 p.m. over 89.9 FM or online, and of course KCRW is big into that podcasting thing.

Across town: Sunday night's Pacific Drift on KPCC will feature New York Times L.A. reporter Charlie LeDuff visiting Jocko's, a small bar outside Santa Maria, to talk about Michael Jackson. Screenwriter and memoirist James Brown reads from his "Los Angeles Diaries" about Hollywood deals gone good and bad. And Obie-award winning playwright Roger Guenveur Smith reads from his work-in-progress about Simon Rodia and the Watts Towers. PD airs at 9 p.m. Sundays at 89.3 FM. KPCC also is into podcasting.
