Some listeners tuned to 90.7 FM over the weekend got to hear a new kind of classic rock--the eclectic pop programming of "The Cosmic Barrio" on North Hollywood's KPFK meshed with the classical music of Tijuana's XLNC1. The musical fusion was neither intentional nor easy on the ears.

FCC Shuts Down Radio Station: The Federal Communications Commission has shut down Southern California's newest talk radio station, XEKAM-AM (950). The programs heard on XEKAM had been produced in a Hollywood studio but were transmitted from a signal based near Rosarito Beach in Mexico. FCC officials said the station failed to get the permit that is required for radio shows that originate in the United States but are delivered to a foreign transmitter for broadcast in the United States.

Twenty-one Cubans were holed up in the Mexican Embassy on Thursday after plowing through the gates with a stolen bus. Cuba's government blamed an exile-run U.S. government radio station for repeatedly quoting a Mexican official as saying the embassy's doors "are open." Mexican Foreign Secretary Jorge Castaneda said Thursday that his words had been taken out of context by "radicals" in Miami who "no doubt wanted to use, to distort, my declarations."

Newspapers and radio stations in Mexico City said Pacheco died while being taken to a hospital in Merida, the capital of Yucatan state.

Mexico's anti-monopoly watchdog, the Federal Competition Commission, said Monday that it had blocked broadcasting giant Televisa's proposed purchase of the country's top radio group, Grupo Acir Telecomunicaciones. The commission said competitors would be squeezed out of the market, especially in advertising. "The vote in the [commission's] plenum was unanimously against the buyout," a spokesman said.

A powerful earthquake killed at least one person, injured dozens and damaged hundreds of homes in southern Mexico on Thursday after it hit 190 miles southeast of the Mexican capital--where it caused panic but little damage nearly 10 years to the day after a massive quake ravaged the city. Officials in the three towns closest to the epicenter in the mountainous state of Guerrero reported extensive damage to the region's homes, most of them one-story adobe structures.

When Mexico City radio stations sounded a warning 50 seconds before a magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck on Sept. 14, queries poured in to the Pasadena field office of the U.S. Geological Survey. "People wanted to know why we don't have a warning system here," said Jim Mori, the Geological Survey's scientist-in-charge in Pasadena. "Even a member of the [Los Angeles County] Board of Supervisors was curious." And the answer? "We had to tell them that here, it's more difficult."
