It's just past 9 o'clock on a foggy Southern California morning, yet Pepe Barreto has already been at work for more than four hours. Businesslike in a long-sleeve shirt and tie, he sits in a spacious studio surrounded by a battery of computer screens, looking more like a stockbroker than the top personality on Southern California's top-ranked radio station. Down an adjoining hallway and around a corner, in the studio of KLVE-FM's (107.5) sister station, KSCA-FM (101.

Pepe Barreto didn't have to get up before sunrise Thursday. He didn't have to get on the empty freeways for the 30-minute commute to work in the predawn chill. In fact, for the first weekday morning in 13 years, Barreto didn't have anything to do. And those around him said he hated it.

While reading "Ready for Drive-Time Players" (by Kevin Baxter, Dec. 14), I almost choked on my huevos rancheros as I read Pepe Barreto's boasting. Not only does he lack talent, wit and a sense of humor, his arrogant and pompous attitude has been his trademark for years. He has a great radio voice, but what good is this when it lacks any sort of personality whatsoever?

She usually orders lomo saltado , a signature Peruvian dish that is a mixture of sauteed sirloin, onion and tomatoes served over white rice with french fries. A first-generation Peruvian immigrant, Lizarraga envisions a hub of Peruvian business and culture in the area. "There is Chinatown, Koreatown, Thai Town, but what about Peru?"

Los Angeles radio listeners seem to prefer their music soothing but their deejays jarring, according to the latest Arbitron ratings survey released Tuesday. While soft-rocking KOST-FM (103.5) coasted back to the top of the ratings heap, after dropping to second for the first time in more than two years last quarter, KLSX-FM (97.1) "shock jock" Howard Stern saw his morning show rise to the No.

'H ola, que tal Sur de California. Les habla Pepe Barreto!" For 10 years, KLVE-FM (107.5) listeners have awakened weekday mornings with that same greeting, cheerfully called by that same voice. Most of that time, no one made much of it. The station scored respectable ratings but in recent years has been overshadowed by rival Spanish-language outlet KLAX-FM (97.9).
