I was actually impressed by the Christian radio station in Los Angeles – the Fish. Pretty good variety. I was listening one night and they played Meltdown by Steve Taylor. Relatively obscure 80s alt-Christian. I was impressed.
Also, random, but I heard this Christian song (I Can Hear You by Carolyn Arends) playing in Bath and Body Works. I asked them who picks the music and they said they get the tape from headquarters. I thought that was interesting.
I slam LA a lot but one thing about the place is that there a lot of good churches there. The Bay Area doesn’t compare. Especially with 2nd generation Asian-American churches. And that’s something I admire.
