Harry Shearer's 'Le Show' lands on KCSN

Thumbnail image for harry-shearer-thumb.jpgThe mostly music radio station at Cal State Northridge, FM 88.5, will be the over-the-air outlet in Los Angeles for "Le Show," Harry Shearer's long-running weekend topical program. The show was dropped from the KCRW lineup in April. KCSN will air "Le Show" on Sundays at 10 a.m., and although the webpage says 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., I doubt they are really going to run it all day and night. Starting date still to be determined, apparently.

KCSN is an interesting station on the LA music scene. Sky Daniels, a veteran of LA radio icon KMET and elsewhere, is the program director. Nic Harcourt, formerly the music director at KCRW, does his morning show there now. Robert Hilburn, the former Los Angeles Times pop music critic who has a book coming this year on Johnny Cash, has a show on rock and roll Sunday evenings from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Kevin Bronson's Buzz Bands airs at 9 p.m. on Sundays. KCSN's signal can be hard to receive in some areas, but it seems better than it used to be.
