Claudia Puig's piece on the success of KLAX-FM ("Buenos Diiiiiias, Los Annnnngeles!" June 12) missed one important point: the radio station's crossover appeal to non-Latinos. True, we listen to the station to practice our Spanish and learn more about the Latino culture, but it's the banda beat that really makes us tune in. What a great way to wake up for the morning commute! GREGORY A. DOBIE LOUISE MANDELL CATHY MCCARTY-PROCOPIO Los Angeles

While being fortunate to live in this radio market with "something for everyone" ("Triumph of the Shock-Nots," by Claudia Puig, Aug. 21)--when I tune in to "shock jock" Howard Stern, his is the only program, television or radio, where I never switch to another station as soon as it is time for commercials. Even the commercials are fun to listen to. I believe this is why I listen to the radio when I drive . . . I expect to be entertained, that's all! RICK MORELL San Dimas

Here I am: a college-educated professional in what's usually described as "the affluent Westside." A desirable listener/consumer, one would think. Yet, once more, I'm being ignored by the business interests of commercial radio. Because I have no patience for the archaic, the banal or the puerile, I had no radio "home" until KEDG's J.J. Jackson (and the cadre of deejays he assembled) put music on the air that I could listen to without punching the channel selector every 30 seconds in frustration.

Regarding "Drive Time Isn't Prime Time for Women," by Claudia Puig (Oct. 13): Anyone driving along the freeway between the hours of 6 and 8 a.m. can see women drivers. The astute observer would see them constantly bending over to change their radio stations. Why? They are, as I have been, looking for that female voice of reason, wit and clarity to help them begin their day, realizing that the radio stations provide this only on an intermittent basis. Zany, wacky and entertaining are a matter of personal preference.

I commend and congratulate Claudia Puig's article "Radio in the Raw" (Feb. 9). She was able to approach this issue without bias, using only those people interviewed for the article to state opinion--thereby allowing the reader to form his or her own opinion. I wish I could find more uninfluential reporting in all forms of the media. GEORGE BATES Fountain Valley Thank you for giving every puritan yahoo and politically correct yo-yo out there valuable tips about how they can become rat finks for the Federal Communications Commission.

Regarding "Drive Time Isn't Prime Time for Women," by Claudia Puig (Oct. 13): It's not surprising that there aren't more women in the spotlight during morning drive time, given the attitude of some of the women in radio today. It was shocking to find that women in the '90s are stereotyping themselves, especially women who do reach large audiences. The statement by Kim Amidon of KOST-FM that "women are socialized to not be as outrageous as men," but rather to be "sophisticated and sexy," made me question what decade she's living in. And I wonder: Is Ellen K. of KIIS-FM trying to validate why she's not in Rick Dees' place when she says that "if I turned (the radio)

Re "KFAC Parcels Out Classical Library," Aug. 24, by Claudia Puig and Terry McQuilkin): It's a crime. Giving some of the recordings to Stanford University and the Los Angeles Library is a cultural shock and tragedy. KFAC has a moral responsibility to distribute all those life-enhancing recordings to classical music stations in this area. DUKE RUSSELL, Hollywood

Regarding "Less Fat: Popcorn or Milk Bones?" Summer Sneaks, May 15): I read Claudia Puig's article on dogs in Hollywood films and (sniff) feel so left out. JOE CAMP Mulberry Square Productions Gulfport, Miss. Camp is the creator of Benji and writer-director of the four Benji films.

So after spending $55 million to purchase classical station KFAC-FM, Evergreen Media Corp. is now contemplating a format change to rock music in order to raise profits. What did it think it was buying--a pro basketball team? Will Los Angeles become the only major city with no classical station?

In her March 29 article on the Media Awards given by the Assn. of Asian-Pacific Americans Artists ("Jimmie Awards Mark Dispelling of Race Stereotypes"), Claudia Puig mistakenly reported that the Jimmies honor "best" play, "best" TV series, etc. Actually, the awards are more of a symbol of encouragement for progress in the entertainment industry, recognizing the companies, producers and individuals who present honest portrayals of Asian-Pacific Americans and their culture.
