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.

Yesterday I joined Which Way, LA? with Warren Olney (Ahhh, Warren Olney. His show falls under the “reasons I love public radio” umbrella). We were together to talk about Waze, the crowd-sourced traffic app.
A recent AP report focused on how the app is changing traffic in Los Angeles and talked to residents who are objecting to more cars in their neighborhood. From AP: 
When word spread that the explosively popular new smartphone …

Well, the rain is back in town for a limited engagement, appearing with the Water Ballet at a freeway near you. And we may inadvertently (or hopefully not) participate in the sport of Water Flying, otherwise known as hydroplaning. Please leave this in the hands of professional stunt drivers.
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 …

The LA Times reports that between 2002 and 2012, more than 5,600 cyclists were injured and at least 36 died in hit and run collisions.
Over the weekend, the LA Times published a map chronicling these accidents, and stories of those who were involved in crashes where …
