The great thing about the living-room jam session is that there are no rules, no set lists, no worries about when things start and when - or if - they'll end. The potential downside? No rules, no set lists, no worries about when things start and when - or if - they'll end. The first Merry Minstrel Musical Circus on Thursday at the venerable Troubadour in West Hollywood was to be a public version of the jam sessions that L.A. guitarist, songwriter, singer and producer Jonathan Wilson used to hold regularly in his house in Laurel Canyon, before he relocated his home and studio to new digs in Echo Park.

With several changes that promise to heighten its profile in the crowded Southland radio dial, KCSN-FM (88.5) appears to be gathering steam in its campaign to be the little L.A. rock radio station that could. Starting Oct. 18, KCSN will bring Nic Harcourt back to morning radio with an expanded weekday drive-time show that will have the former KCRW-FM (89.9) “Morning Becomes Eclectic” host at the mike from 6 to 11 a.m. Monday through Friday. Additionally, the station has hired former Indie 103.1 FM music director Mark Sovel to handle the same job at the Cal State Northridge-based operation, which is enhancing its reach across Los Angeles with significant upgrades to its signal.

A year ago Cal State Northridge-based radio station KCSN-FM (88.5) began to promote its "Smart Rock" format, programming that incorporates the eclecticism of the far more established public station KCRW-FM (89.9) with regular doses of pop music's "heritage" acts. Within months, audience donations nearly doubled. Now if only the station's signal, which barely makes it from the San Fernando Valley campus to Griffith Park, had increased by as much. "If I get one more email from somebody who tells me precisely the corner they're at, people literally telling me the precise longitude and latitude where they lose the signal…," said KCSN general manager Sky Daniels.

February 11, 1996 | Steve Hochman and Albums are rated on a scale of one star (poor), two stars (fair), three stars (good) and four stars (excellent).
As the official Baby Boomer balladeer, Browne has chronicled the growing pains of a generation that's gone from post-adolescence in the Nixon years to middle age with one of its own in the White House. The lesson is that little has changed, and fittingly, the best moments on "Looking East," Browne's first work truly reflecting on his and his peers' entry into mid-life, slot nicely alongside his prime '70s work.

Members of the L.A. quartet Dawes have been performing for paying audiences since they were teenagers, so there was no reason John Fogerty could see to go easy on them. "Let's do it one more time," said the veteran roots rocker, standing onstage in jeans and a plaid shirt at the Moody Theater in Austin, Texas. Fogerty had recruited Dawes to back him during a concert at the South by Southwest music festival - part of the lead-in to his upcoming album of all-star collaborations - and in an early-afternoon soundcheck the musicians were running through the Creedence Clearwater Revival song "Someday Never Comes.

The previous record holder was Jay-Z with seven.  "I'm glad it's over," Coyne told Pop & Hiss about one hour after setting the record during a string of shows throughout the Mississippi Delta.

It's hard to believe that it's been nearly 25 years since Jackson Browne first showed up on the pop scene, a boyish balladeer with self-probing songs that shaped--or at least tapped into--the post-Woodstock sorting-out process of the '70s. It was even harder to believe it's been that long when Browne came on stage at the Greek Theatre on Saturday as boyish-looking as ever.

The grin on Glenn Frey's face was clearly a satisfied one, but there was something else there too, something tugging at the corners of his mouth -- it was a trickster smile of a man hatching a plot or enjoying the subversive tang of a still-private punch line. "I feel so empowered," Frey said as he jabbed a "play" button on the control board at his Santa Monica recording studio. It's here he put together the just- released "After Hours," his first solo album in 20 years and a whole new flight path for the Eagles member.
