Local Radio's Season of Giving

Freely accessible local news is vital. Please power our reporters and help keep us independent with a donation today during our fall member drive.

It's rare that we actually listen to LA's commercial radio stations. KCRW and the faux-indie 103.1 usually do us just fine. While downing large amounts of tofu pad see ew at our favorite hole in the wall Thai restaurant today, however, the usually vanilla 94.7 The Wave said something that excited us.

Throaty voiced DJ Talaya Trigueros announced that they were giving away a trip an hour (between 8 AM and 5 PM) from now until Christmas Day. A trip for two to pretty much anywhere around the world.

We think that's pretty darn cool and officially the best of the radio giveaways currently going on this holiday season. If you work in a stuffy office around town, we'd bet good money that that bland music you're ignoring from the PA system or the voicemail system or the elevator is from the fine boring folks at The Wave. We'd suggest you stop tuning out Dave Koz in the morning and start trying to win.
