Radio programming notes

Few quick items:

  • California's prisoner release controversy is Warren Olney's main item on tonight's "Which Way, L.A.?" at 7:30 on KCRW.
  • Tomorrow on "The Treatment" on KCRW at 2:30 p.m., "Sherlock Holmes" director Guy Ritchie stops in to chat with Elvis Mitchell.
  • KCRW and KPCC will air the State of the Union speech live at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, followed by the Republican response and analysis from National Public Radio. The NPR programming runs until 9 p.m. with a national call-in hour hosted by Neal Conan.
  • My Friday segments on KCRW are on hiatus for two weeks of fundraising. Last Friday's piece talked about the historic normalcy of the recent storms — tornadoes and all.

Also: Art Talk commentator Edward Goldman says today he was "not particularly impressed by either Photo LA, at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, or the LA Art Show, at the downtown Convention Center. Though everything was handled professionally and ran smoothly, the overall tone of both fairs was rather subdued, and art-wise there were not many surprises."
