Tell Bobb Lynes and Barbara Sunday that they're throwbacks to another time and they'd probably thank you for the compliment. Lynes and Sunday, whose real name is Barbara Watkins, both of South Pasadena, are hosts of the longest-running show in Los Angeles airing old-time radio classics. Drawing from their collection of more than 36,000 radio programs, the duo's program, "Don't Touch That Dial," features such vintage shows as "The Aldrich Family" and "Inner Sanctum" from noon to 3 p.m.

PERFORMING ARTS Pops Strike Halted: The striking musicians who make up the New York Pops have settled on a new contract with the orchestra and will resume performances next week. The deal calls for the musicians to get a 16% wage increase over the next three years--3% more than the orchestra's final offer before the strike began last week, forcing cancellation of two concerts last weekend at Carnegie Hall.

Feeling the sting from falling corporate and public contributions, National Public Radio has cut back its hourly newscasts by 25%. The decision to reduce the programs from 24 per day to 18 was quickly implemented: Top management told affiliated stations about the cuts April 23, and they went into effect Sunday night. "It just became financially impossible" to do the newscasts, said NPR spokeswoman Mary Morgan. The turnaround was so fast that some programmers didn't even know about it.
