At a Glance: How to handle a flight cancellation

Number one tip: Whether it’s an airport delay or flight cancellation, contact your airline – immediately. Here’s why:
Airlines have fewer seats on fewer flights these days, so only a lucky few will be able to grab the next available seats on a flight. Being first in line to snag a seat is key.
If Your Flight is Canceled Multi-task communications:
If your flight is canceled or delayed, immediately get in line for a gate agent; at the same time, call the airline (it may be quicker).
Use your elite miles status:
If your status entitles you to a dedicated airline contact hotline, use it.
Follow your airline on Twitter:
Airlines have staff monitoring social networks, and may respond more quickly to tweets for help than other communications

The Malibu Canyon Tunnel is closed for construction
I like calling the tunnel the Pink Lady. I want to keep her story alive and honor the artist, 31-year-old Lynne Seemayer along with her art. In the late 60’s when Seemayer decided to and actually did clean off the graffiti from a mountainside in Malibu. She would slip out of bed, leave her family and head to the canyon with her paint, her supplies and the moon in the sky. All by herself up the mountain she’d climb, then with her rope she’d rappel off the side.

Let’s make a New Year resolution to do better.
A resolution that we must make for life so that others can also have a life.
Staggering numbers for our planet, losing 500 children everyday needlessly. Those 500 hundred children are the fatalities. There are countless numbers of children that survive but are left sufferring from physical and emotional trauma, more often than not, with life-altering injuries for them, their families and even affecting their communities.

Rain makes accidents way more likely. From 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. last Tuesday, Dec 2, 2014 …

Matt Holzman needs you to call and pledge!

Can you imagine a day where KCRW only had a pledge drive that lasted for 4 days? And within those 4 days, can you imagine if we didn’t interrupt every KCRW program asking for your support? Instead, only reaching out to you during three shows – as – opposed to all of eternity? I know, sound too good to be true, right?
Well my friends …
