The WAVE, Unsurprised

April 10, 1993

Check your sources. None of us here at The WAVE was surprised that KLSX and Jim Ladd bid on and won the former KMET record library (Morning Report, March 29). Ladd's name was the first mentioned as a possible bidder when the idea came up to include the library in our "March Against AIDS" radiothon. We're more than pleased that all that vinyl didn't end up in some used-record store.

For the record, KTWV, and our listeners, raised $308,429 to benefit AIDS Project Los Angeles during our 28-hour radiothon, hosted (in its entirety) by John Tesh. Among the dozens of items auctioned were a part in "Phantom of the Opera" and a 1964 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud, which drew the highest dollar amount at $38,500. And, by the way, the recognized industry term for The WAVE's format is New Adult Contemporary.
