In a push to make nail salons safer, the city of Santa Monica is launching a program to recognize salons that use healthier products and provide better indoor air quality. The program, which begins Tuesday, aims to improve working conditions for roughly 120 nail technicians working at 30 licensed salons throughout the city. Nail salons will be recognized if they meet certain requirements, including avoiding polishes with the most toxic chemicals, ensuring their employees wear proper gloves and taking steps to improve ventilation.

The oldies station KCBS-FM (93.1) named a new program director Friday, a day after the fall Arbitron ratings ranked the CBS-owned station a soft No. 24 in Los Angeles. The station drew a 1.4 share of the audience, about the same as last summer's Arbitron rankings of 43 of the greater Los Angeles area's roughly 80 stations.

In the spring we followed students in the Woodbury School of Architecture's Design/Build program as they created miniature cabins using components from store-bought sheds. This last semester, another set of students were given 10-by-10-foot sheds from Home Depot and CC&Rs (covenants, conditions and restrictions for building) from professors Jeanine Centuori and Sonny Ward. Teams also were given a theme - performance, music, games, therapy or dining - for each of five cabins, which will be used as part of a therapy program at the Shadow Hills Riding Club.

Chris Brodie, the only program director the Wave, KTWV-FM (94.7), has ever had, is leaving the smooth-jazz outlet at the end of the year. "Going on 19 years, I think I've been intimately involved with raising a very healthy station," Brodie said Thursday. But now she wants to spend more time with her 10-year-old daughter, Leah. Brodie has been at the station since 1984, when it was still KMET--"the Mighty Met," where album-oriented rock was said to have been invented.

Within the last few weeks, three program directors of various arts disciplines at the National Endowment for the Arts have resigned their posts. Although two of the directors say their departures were not motivated by recent controversies, one of them--Susan Lubowsky of the visual arts program--said that increasing politicization of the NEA figured into her decision.

The city last week backed out of a contract with a private agency chosen to run the city's long-awaited child-abuse prevention program because it found out that the agency's program director lost his license as a clinical psychologist because he had sexual relations with two of his adult female patients.

Kingsley McLaren thinks that youngsters ought to have a more edifying alternative to the Saturday morning barrage of cartoons on television. So last month, the program director of KFSD-FM, San Diego's only classical music station, inaugurated "Kids Klassics," a 7-9 a.m. Saturday program that plays classical requests from children. "Their requests are more sophisticated than I thought they would be," McLaren said.

"I love this!" Haz Montana says with the same kind of enthusiasm Robert Duvall had for napalm in "Apocalypse Now." "I love this format. I love this music. I love being in a radio station that is presented in Spanish. I really do. I don't know why. Maybe I'm a freak." Well, that's a possibility. Let's just say it's rare for the son of Iraqi immigrants, raised in a Jewish neighborhood, to go on to program a Spanish-language radio station in the nation's most competitive market.

NEW YORK - Can a group of Angelenos guide New York's most venerable film institution through a major crossroads? That's one of several questions facing the Film Society of Lincoln Center and its flagship New York Film Festival as longtime program director Richard Pena prepares to step down at the end of the year in a long-planned retirement. The festival kicks off its milestone 50th edition Friday with a black-tie world premiere of Ang Lee's awards hopeful “Life of Pi. " It continues over the following two weeks with several dozen of the fall's highest-profile titles, including world premieres for Robert Zemeckis' “Flight” and David Chase's “Not Fade Away.” The event will mark Pena's 25th festival, and organizers will walk a line between honoring him (Pena has been given one of two newly created tribute slots, along with Nicole Kidman)

Rep. Paul D. Ryan says he doesn't like government waste and he's probably got very few friends in show business, so when he found out several years ago what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was up to in Hollywood, he tried to pull the plug on one  entertainment industry initiative. The CDC was one of the founders of Hollywood Health & Society, a program of the Norman Lear Center at USC. The program gives entertainment industry professionals free consultations on their television programs and movies so that any health-related plots reflect “accurate and timely information.” Over the past two years, Hollywood Health & Society has consulted on more than 380 story lines on shows such as “Grey's Anatomy,” “Private Practice” and “Sesame Street,” said the program's director, Sandra de Castro Buffington.

Riding wave after wave of pop hits that carried the station into more radios than any other in the market, Top 40 outlet KIIS-FM (102.7) dominated Los Angeles-Orange County ratings for most of the last three years.

After already claiming January and February, talk station KFI-AM (640) - home of commentators such as Bill Handel, John Kobylt, Ken Chiampou and Tim Conway Jr. - placed first in the March ratings, released Monday.

Renae Williams Niles is a name that stirs little recognition, but she is the most powerful person in dance in Los Angeles. It is her job, as director of programming, to select the companies and repertory for each season of Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at the Music Center. But that description sells short her impact and influences in this city's dance life. Niles is highly regarded for her business acumen and knowledge of the art. Her unpretentiousness and sunny disposition have also won her fans.

Just because there's no Clinton versus Obama as in the 2008 presidential primaries, only a race among Republican hopefuls, doesn't mean the mostly conservative commentators on talk radio are holding their tongues this political season. "It's great for these stations, and the best part of it is, it's been a circus," said Jack Silver, program director at KABC-AM (790), local home of Sean Hannity and other talk stars. Herman Cain's 9-9-9 tax plan and alleged sexual impropriety, Texas Gov. Rick Perry forgetting what federal departments he'd eliminate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney trying to make a $10,000 bet with Perry over his healthcare position — not to mention more substantive issues such as the economy and national defense: The race has provided plenty of fodder for discussion.

Now that the Pac-12 Conference has made its long-term deal with the devil, also known as television, expect more indignities ahead for the ticket-buying spectator. Case in point: The 7 p.m. Saturday start for the USC-UCLA football game. If you think for one moment that the athletic directors at the schools actually have a say in how their fans are accommodated for something like the marquee sports event of the year for each school, think again. Pat Haden, USC's athletic director: "I would like to play every game at 12:30 p.m. " Dan Guerrero, UCLA's athletic director: "If somebody gave me a wish list, I'd start every game at 12:30 or 1 p.m. " Good luck with that, Pat and Dan. The game Saturday at the Coliseum starts at dinner time because television said so. It is the puppeteer.

After more than 50 years of high school sports competition, Van Nuys Montclair Prep, a private school in the San Fernando Valley, announced Monday it will discontinue its sports program, stunning alumni and creating a scramble for its top athletes with eligibility remaining. "As a result of this economy and overwhelming requests for financial aid, we had to restructure," said the school's director, Mark Simpson. Besides the sports program being eliminated, the school, which was founded in 1956, will no longer offer financial aid and will drop its teaching program for seventh- and eighth-graders, becoming a 9-12 school.

With a name like Sky Daniels, there's no question where the new program director at Cal State Northridge-based radio station KCSN-FM (88.5) is reaching with the ambitious and eclectic new format he's introducing this coming weekend. "We're not going to be elitist," said Daniels, a veteran of commercial rock stations, including (the now-defunct) KMET-FM in Los Angeles and KFOG-FM in San Francisco, as well as a record company executive. "Sometimes stations, especially noncommercial stations, get caught up in playing music you're supposed to like if you really knew what was going on. "That's just not who I am," said Daniels.
