Just one week away from expanding eligibility for the coronavirus vaccine by up to 1.8 million people, Los Angeles County officials are worried the online system required by the state to book appointments will continue to pose challenges in communities hit hardest by the pandemic. Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Hilda Solis said on Tuesday, Feb. 23, that she was “not surprised,” but nonetheless “disgusted” by certain people using any means necessary to obtain vaccine doses. “I can tell you I was...

Director Richard Kelly is Playing the Long Game – Here’s What He’s Working on Now [Interview]

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Donnie Darko. Although not a box-office success, it didn’t take long for the cult film and director Richard Kelly to find a devoted audience.

That overwhelming sense of obsession continued to run deep in Kelly’s movies, including Southland Tales and The Box. They’re typically dense pieces of work demanding discussion and repeat viewings. Even with only three direc...

Southern California gets ready for expected, regional stay-at-home order

Southern California could enter a regional stay-at-home order as soon as Sunday night, Dec. 5, after state officials announced late Friday that only 13.1% of adult intensive care beds were available in the area. Gov. Gavin Newsom, in an announcement Thursday, said the state would enact such orders by region when available ICU bed availability fell to 15% or lower. The new state order goes into effect at 12:59 p.m. Saturday. So if Southern California remains below that threshold in Saturday’s dat...

Stop Los Angeles County’s foolish ban on outdoor dining

Los Angeles home cooks and restaurateurs practically invented year-round al fresco dining, because, well, we could: We have the world’s best climate for eating out of doors. That’s one reason why L.A. restaurants have pivoted out of necessity but with such poise toward all-outdoor meal service ever since they were allowed to reopen this past summer during the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic. It took investment — in personal protective equipment for staff, in training, in Plexiglass shields, i...

There’s a surprising format change coming to this LA radio station

More changes are coming to LA Oldies K-Surf (1260 AM); oldies will be going away to make room for, well, I guess another form of oldies: 24/7 classical.

Station owner Saul Levine hopes that upgrades in the audio chain and more radios in the market capable of receiving the station’s HD signal will help build an audience for classical music on the AM band, something he tried to do about five years ago.
