D'ya ever wonder, stalled in gridlock, what that perky classical radio deejay is doing behind the microphone--perhaps, hidden from public view, delivering that chatty, animated spiel like an automaton? Rich Capparela is no automaton. Lips inches from a bulbous mike, he gestured as if conversing with a friend during Thursday's live broadcast of the Pacific Symphony, which Capparela hosted for KKGO-FM (105.1) from backstage at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in Costa Mesa.

Don Heckman's review of the Hollywood Bowl's opening night made note of actor Jeff Goldblum's narration of the video history of the Bowl ("Bowl's Past Takes Spotlight in Summer Opener," June 26).

We have been buffeted a lot in the last three years, having seen our sources turn fickle and then one unnecessarily die. The brief resurrection from...

Unhappy about KMZT's switch from FM to AM on the radio dial, Pacific Symphony is moving its broadcast home to classical station KUSC-FM (91.5), beginning this weekend. The Orange County orchestra said the remaining five concerts in the current season of its Hal and Jeanette Segerstrom Family Foundation Classics Series would air live on Saturdays at 8 p.m. on KUSC. The series will resume there in the fall.
