Axl Rose of Guns'n'RosesL.A. Times | 12-26-11

On a recent Saturday morning in Seattle, Guns N' Roses singer Axl Rose sat down for a long, freewheeling interview after his band's three-hour concert the night before at Key Arena.  A sharp, well-spoken Rose tackled many topics, among them what happened to L.A. radio? You can read more of the interview here and here.

Have you heard anything recently that surprised you?

There was a station dumping their easy-listeners, and it was the best two weeks of music in L.A. I ever heard. It'd go from Queen's "Dead on Time" to "Fingerprint File" by the Stones, to "Rockaria" by ELO, to "The Theme from 'S.W.A.T.' " Just crazy, fun music. I turned to my friends and everybody was like, "Yes!" I called the station and said, "I will do anything to help promote your station." And they go, "It's not a real station. We're just dumping listeners." I said, "But this is it! This is amazing!"  [Click "Read more" tab below.]

WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE, AXL. HAVE WE GOT A STATION FOR YOU...

WE'RE INTERVIEWING QUEEN'S ROGER TAYLOR Thu Dec 28 at 1pm.

November 16th 2006, is not only a historic day for these communities but for all of the country who are committed to media democratization and the realization of a three-tiered media structure--public, private and community; based on principles of equity and  inclusiveness.

During the 11 and half years of struggle the community radio movement witnessed several ups and downs before the November 16th endorsement by the government. In 2004, the ministry of Information and  Broadcasting initiated a consultative process to determine an enabling environment for community radio in the country. Through this process, a consensus document was ratified and taken up by the I & B ministry.
