Like virtually every other mainstream arts organization in Los Angeles, radio station KUSC-FM--which features classical music--has been wrestling with the problem of how to include more ethnic and non-traditional music in its repertoire without insulting the classicists with trendiness or patronizing the underrepresented with mere good intentions. Along came Rebecca Davis. Before she took over KUSC's afternoon "Commuter Classics" in November, 1992, she had never hosted a radio program before.

A squad of police today stormed a bar near the University of California campus and gunned down a heavily armed man who had killed one student and held others hostage for seven hours of terror and sexual perversion. Lt. Jim Polk, commander of the police SWAT team, said the gunman, described by witnesses as an Iranian in his 30s, had been undergoing violent mood swings and there was fear he would harm his hostages, so the decision was made shortly after 7 a.m.

The Orange County Children's Theatre's "Wizard of Oz" takes a less-traveled route to the Emerald City, but it's well worth the trip. Unlike many stage versions of the story, this "Wizard" uses a script based not on the book, "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz," but on the 1939 film version of the L. Frank Baum story. John Kane's script features the original Harold Arlen/E.Y.
