Respected L.A. Radio Chronicler Don Barrett Dies


AVILA BEACH, CALIF. — For generations of Southern Californians, he’s known as the brainchild behind the “Los Angeles Radio People” website, which kept an ongoing log of nearly every individual who worked at an AM or FM in the nation’s No. 2 market by size between 1957 and 1997. He launched KIQQ-FM 100.3 in Los Angeles in the 1970s.

Today, the name Don Barrett is one thousands of individuals in the Golden State know, thanks to those efforts. And, many are now mourning the passing of Barrett, who was 81 years of age.
