--------------------------------------------------------------------

Our mission: In light of a monolithic corporate culture with ever-increasing ownership consolidation, not to mention the recent FCC crackdown on everything even remotely controversial, UCLAradio.com's mission as independent media to provoke its listeners is as vital as ever. UCLAradio.com is committed to the finest programming to inform and entertain UCLA and the world at large, and offering UCLA students and staff the opportunity to participate in the creation and delivery of this content. Our history: Student radio at UCLA began as KCLA in the basement of Dykstra Hall in 1962. Once ASUCLA took the station under its wing, we were with our station, located in the student union tucked away behind Ackerman Grand Ballroom. Legitimized by the purchase of a carrier current transmitter, we made our official debut on 820 AM in the 60s as KBRU, KUCW, and finally KLA. Through the 80s and early 90s, KLA could be found at 830 AM before transitioning to FM. For a time, UCLA Radio was also distributed by a local cable company on several bands. When the FCC pulled the plug on KLA 91.9 FM's signal in 1999, UCLA broke out and moved to its current platform: the Internet!

“Wherever you go in Los Angeles, music is sure to follow.” 🎶

This past winter, our Digital Press interns explored what they termed the “soundscapes” of L.A.—from Griffith Observatory, to Amoeba Music, to Beachwood Cafe, to Santa Monica Pier, to the Troubadour, and all along Wilshire boulevard. They recounted how each of these places comes with a certain attachment to music. 🌆

Wondering if that special someone is thinking about you? Us too…❤️‍🔥

Our digital press department asked you for your unsent messages: the words you never got to share with that person. Maybe it was out of fear or spite, or a missed chance opportunity. Visions of a smoky jazz club with a long gone lover, an impossible transcontinental romance with a New-York-bound beau, and an admiration for the clumsy walk of a crush are samples of the many stories that caught our eyes. 💌💌

Dear reader, we hope these unsent messages fill your hearts, just to break them right back down and patch them back up. Over and over again…❤️‍🩹
