A listeners' crusade has rescued "Cynic's Choice," a 20-year-old Sunday comedy fixture at KFAC-AM (1330), from oblivion with the announcement Thursday that the weekly program will continue to air in Los Angeles and Orange counties. Stations KSRF-FM (103.1) in Santa Monica and KOCM-FM (103.1) in Newport Beach, both owned by Radio Broadcasters Inc., will begin airing the two-hour British comedy revue at its old time of 10 a.m., each Sunday, beginning Jan.

Virgin Radio hit the airwaves April 30 with a format devoted to "classic" album-oriented rock of the last 25 years. Lots of Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones and that kind of thing. Not exactly trend-setting sounds--not in this decade, that is.
