    Since The Sound went under over a year ago, "free radio" has been dogshit in my opinion. Now there's this... http://laoldies.com

    It's KEarth before it went to shit <late 70s & early 80s> plus TenQ & Boss Radio KHJ feom the late 60s/early 70s.

    I like it.

    Of course... KRLA ... ashamed to leave that one out.

    It's funny that AM radio was cool then. It went bad fast though, as KMET was all I listened to by 1975. My big brother forbid me to change the dial anyway. I had to get my own transistor to listen to 790AM to hear Dodger games.

    My daughter just wrapped up her Transitional Kindergarten year today ....

    Just want to say this is unreal. How in the blue fuck did I get from watching her be born to finishing up any level of school ever? Isn't she always supposed to be a new born? What in the fuck?

    Don't miss HBO's" The Cold Blue ", a documentary done by Wm. Wyler about the unbelievable hardships of the 8th Air Force. Gut wrencing, as told by actual crew members of B- 17s. Wyler flew right with them, too.
    Besides the flak, enemy fighters, adverse weather conditions, and whatever, the consistently worse thing they faced was sub zero cold, up tp 40 below at 25,000 ft., every mission. Incredible stories of situations endured by young men, sometimes just teenagers.
    More air crew died in WWII than the total of the USMC.
    28,000.
    A gripping and emotional film, well worth the watching.

    went to a reception for one of my daughters friends at a distillery in LA called Greenbar last night
    ended up sitting w a family and was introduced to Tom Meusborn of Chatsworth high coaching fame
    have known his daughter for years and didn't know he was her dad
    truly a shame he doesn't get another shot to coach a team
    maybe in a couple of years when that pension lock in
    very humble and decent man plus he laughed at my big hands joke

    I've read a lot about him. He's widely respected by every coach in the entire Southern section CIF. But LA and Orange County prep sports grind away at you. I don't blame him for taking some time off. I imagine he'll get back to it before too many more years go by. The really great ones, like him, find it almost impossible to completely walk away unless they're dead or dying.

    he didn't say it outright but its not exactly a secret that city sports are totally fucked
    w the private schools offering actual educations the best players are long gone now
    i fully expect to see him return in a couple of years
    his son played for him and will be coaching soon at one of a couple of schools (won't mention which one just in case)
    great kid and he ended up dancing next to me blaming me for his tequila buzz
    was talking about playing w Moose and against Yelich etc.
    made for a fun table conversation at least for me

    He’s doing well. Working in hedge fund law now. Recently engaged also (to a woman). I had to clarify to dispel any rumors that Diablo was likely to bring up.

    I don't like that Omar died in The Wire, he should have killed Marlo.

    i thought about it and my guess is Sauce IS Shaw lol
    is that why you changed your ID and never came back after coming out to catch a game?
    iirc you brought a friend and stayed at my place for free and then attempted to leave without even compensating me for the tickets i had bought for you
    i also recall you and your buddy sitting next to Darth and giggling like little girls the whole time but never said a word to the board or anyone else
    i could care less if you're gay or whatever since my step daughter and my nephew are both gay
    the unfortunate thing about you is your character but again i never said one word to this board
    let's see if you can own it and man up about the charade Shaw
