Back in Business: A locally produced program, "Consumer Business Radio," is scheduled to return to the air with KWIZ-FM in Pasadena for a 26-week run. The program, to be broadcast during prime commuting hours of 3 to 5 p.m., quizzes local business people about their specialties. A patent attorney or time study specialist, for example, will be invited to solve business problems, producer Barry Allen said. Specialists often pay for the opportunity to be on the show, he said.

Sandwiched between songs on a local radio station's weekday morning show, an unusual public service announcement is now airing that encourages parents countywide to get their children to school. As part of an innovative program launched last week to improve school attendance, Spanish contemporary music station KWIZ, 1480 AM, is running the 25-second announcements telling parents that "education is the key to your child's future," and "please send your child to school every day."

First up was a love song with the usual laundry-load of sudsy sentiment and a little lust thrown in for spice. Then came the hourly weather report, promising a day of bright, cloudless skies. Next was a public service announcement, then a traffic update and finally a segue back to the music. It was just a typical morning's programming for KWIZ-FM, 96.7 on the FM dial . . . and it was all in Korean.
