As the only independently Black-owned radio station in South Central Los Angeles, KJLH-FM was thrust into the national and international media spotlight in the aftermath of the Rodney King trial. During the ensuing riots, KJLH introduced the world to South Central Los Angeles as only those who lived and worked there could. Owned by musician Stevie Wonder since 1979, the station upheld his legacy of community commitment, becoming an essential hub for the African American community and earning a Peabody Award along the way. This book explores the social, political, and economic impact of KJLH, drawing heavily upon more than 200 pages of interview and program transcripts from the 1992 radio coverage.
