Making the Art Laboe Connection Dj Art Laboe has been a fixture of L.A. radio for more than 60 years...until this week. His show, The Art Laboe Connection, has been taken off L.A.’s airwaves as part of a programming overhaul. HOT 92.3 - with an oldies format - is now Real 92.3, a hip hop station. Fans are not happy: An online petition to get Laboe back on the air already has more than 8,000 signatures. He was the first DJ to spin West Coast rock n’ roll, and he invented the request and dedication and the term “oldies but goodies.” We hear about why he’s such a broadcast legend in Southern California.
Rock 'n' Roll Los Angeles When people think of LA, they almost always think of Hollywood and the film industry. But it’s no secret that the LA music scene has been one of the most influential in the world. It’s the place where artists recorded some of rock and pop’s greatest hits. And the people who introduced those hits were DJs like Dave Diamond, Wolfman Jack, Art Laboe, and Casey Kasem -- men who became tastemakers for the entire country and the world.
