LA Theatre Works Moving from KPCC to KPFK

Los Angeles Theatre Works, the weekly national radio show that airs contemporary and classic plays, is moving locally from KPCC (89.3 FM) to KPFK (90.7 FM) on March 25, according to the Los Angeles Times:

A spokeswoman for L.A. Theatre Works said the move was prompted by KPCC’s decision to rearrange its programming. The show has been airing Saturdays at 10 p.m. on KPCC. The spokeswoman said the new time slot on KPFK is more desirable for the company.

KPCC has been the home of LA Theatre Works since 2002.

The graffiti has since been removed, and the billboard is back to advertising for KPCC. A photo of the unmolested signage is after the jump.

Make/Shift Makes Way For Issue No. 2

dAllEdsPhotocrop.jpgLA-based feminist mag make/shift is gearing up for issue number 2, with a focus on stories about the media.

When the magazine launched in March 2007, it sold out of its 1,000 print-run within weeks. A second printing did so well, that two distributors picked up the title, and now the editor grrrls (Stephanie Abraham, Jessica Hoffmann, and Daria Yudacufski) are gearing up for issue 2 is due out September 18.

Hoffman tells FBLA the long lag time is due to the volunteer nature of the magazine.

“We’re biannual because this is a volunteer project that we’re all doing on top of already-full schedules (day jobs, freelance writing and editing work, and more),” Hoffman says. “So, in order to stay sane and healthy, we decided to go with a biannual schedule.”

Contributors include L.A. Times op-ed writer Erin Aubry Kaplan, KPFK radio host Sonali Kolhatkar and emerging fiction writer Myriam Gurba.

Come celebrate the launch on Oct. 10 at Skylight Books with readings featuring Gurba, Kaplan, Dean Spade, and others.
