I bring you good tidings of great joy, for unto you this day is born a NEW OLDIES STATION in L.A., and it is good.

Check out 1260 AM--"True Oldies." No commercials, precious little in the way of DJs except some sort of gruff old stoner.

It's like K-Earth, if the DJs picked the music.

Today, besides more familiar hits I heard "I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night" by the Electric Prunes, "Skinny Legs And All" by Joe Tex, "Bongo Rock" by Preston Epps, "Black and White" by Three Dog Night and "Son of a Preacher Man" by Ms. Dusty Springfield.

This was all during random moments I happened to tune in while running errands.

These songs tell a story of a different life than the one told on K-Earth and KOLA 99.9.

It is truly the answer to Lenny of "The Simpsons," who asked: "Why do the oldies stations always play the same songs over and over? We want new oldies!"

I think it is a national broadcast signal much like Radio Disney, except oldies, and rad.
