Do you know those radio programs where you can call and dedicate a song to a friend or loved one? Radio DJ/Host Art Laboe is the person responsible for this clever and still popular idea. He recently passed on, but his legacy will continue in the hearts of many Southern Californians. He got his start in the beginnings of rock n roll back in the day. His show for decades was highly rated, and he coined the famous phrase “oldies but goodies.” At NoHo Senior Arts Colony, we love that phrase! Learn more about this fascinating and creative person and his inspiring legacy in this KCET story.
