Kubernik at KCRW
Nice interview on KCRW Wednesday with Harvey Kubernik, the author of "Turn Up the Radio: Rock, Pop, and Roll in Los Angeles 1956-1972," the fun LA music history book from Santa Monica Press that came out this spring. Interviewer Lisa Napoli focused Kubernik on the importance of the AM radio dial to young rock fans in the 1950s and '60s, at stations like KFWB, KRLA, and KBLA, and how legendary deejays such as Dave Diamond, Art Laboe and others gave crucial airplay to local bands such as the Doors, the Byrds, the Seeds and Love.
Here's the audio. There are videos and more links at the KCRW website.
