CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY NORTHRIDGE Triple A KCSN/LOS ANGELES PD SKY DANIELS has announced more programming changes for the station.
In addition to NIC HARCOURT joining the station, whose new "CONNECTIONS" show will run 3-6p SATURDAYS (see JUNE 17th story here), longtime L.A. TIMES pop music critic ROBERT HILBURN will host a show called "ROCK 'N' ROLL TIMES WITH ROBERT HILBURN" that will air at 6p SUNDAYS. Another former TIMES staffer, KEVIN BRONSON will bring his "BUZZ BANDS" coverage of LOS ANGELES-based bands on the rise to the station from midnight-1a on SUNDAYS. These shows begin the weekend of JULY 15th.
Further, DANIELS himself will return to the airwaves July 18th as the station's afternoon drive DJ (3-7p weekdays); format vet JIM NELSON will handle the morning drive slot (6-10a weekdays) and MEISHEL MENACHEKANIAN will be doing middays (10a-3p weekdays). The station also will continue to carry NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO's "WORLD CAFÉ" program 7-9p weeknights.
"We’re going to play music that can be cutting edge; it might be from an act that will be the next big thing, it can be adventurous, but it's always going to be coming from a place where you can like it, and you don't have to work to like it or pretend to like it so you can keep your credibility card," said DANIELS. "It's going to be a listenable station with two governing ideas: message and melody."
