An official of the National Democratic Party was being interviewed on a political talk radio show. The official and the radio host were discussing the possibility of the Democrats regaining control of the house. During the interview, the Democratic Party official was talking about targeting selected districts and pouring money in order to upset the incumbent.

Marlene Hitt We don't realize today what amazing communication we share. In a recently donated book, "Memories of My Mother Edna Neffeler Franke," by Lois Franke Warren, the world of radio news and entertainment when it was new became real. What a wonderful invention radio must have been! Lois writes: "It was probably about 1927 or 1928 when Daddy brought home a big, mysterious black box with several round knobs on the front." The family clustered around, the cord was plugged into the wall, buttons were pushed, knobs were twirled and "it began to make noises."

I read the article in the Thursday, Nov. 14 edition of the Glendale News-Press regarding the alarm of some parents at the Glendale School District's use of wireless routers in classrooms ( “Group signals Wi-Fi angst.” ). This issue comes up every time a new technology that transmits radio waves is introduced. Some people were alarmed when cellphones were introduced, when Glendale installed smart meters and when the gas company installed smart gas meters. We are bombarded by radio waves all the time.

When Harry A. James died in 1956, his obituary in the Glendale News-Press noted that the chapel of Sacred Memories at the L.G. Scovern mortuary was filled with the many friends he had made during his career in radio, as a recording artist, and later as a very active volunteer in several of Glendale's leading civic and philanthropic groups. James, who was born in England, came to Glendale in 1922. He worked in radio and in 1927 helped open radio station KELW. KELW was begun by Burbank real estate developer Earl L. White, who used his initials to name the station.

When land lines and cell towers fail, it will be the “ham” radios that keep the channels of communication open. To prove it, for a 24-hour period starting on Saturday, amateur radio broadcasters with the Crescenta Valley Radio Club monitored the airwaves from Verdugo Park as part of an annual display of their ability to pick up where modern equipment might fail in a major disaster. And they do it all with little more than a solar panel, antennas and batteries. Members of the group spent Saturday touching base with people in Florida, Georgia, Mississippi and Hawaii.

As police agencies in the tri-city area settle into new digital radio systems, many departments have made, or are considering making, those communications secret, saying it is a response to a growing propensity of listeners to interfere with operations. After spending $7 million on upgrades to comply with a federal 2013 deadline to switch police radio communications from analog to digital, Pasadena encrypted its main frequency, blocking access to outsiders. Listening in on police radio transmissions is a technique media organizations have used for decades to stay on top of breaking public safety events.

Verizon and AT&T Wireless have pulled their advertising off KFI's “John and Ken” show in response to a campaign by several Latino groups to drive the controversial radio talk hosts off the air. Vons and Ralphs, which have advertised on the show in the past, have agreed to not advertise in the future. The National Hispanic Media Coalition made the announcement during a demonstration Thursday in front of KFI's offices in Burbank. The campaign to fire John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou began after the duo read the phone number of Jorge-Mario Cabrera, a local immigration rights advocate, on the air. Within minutes, Cabrera, a staff member with the Coalition of Humane Immigration Rights of L.A., reportedly received hundreds of hate-filled calls.
