turn your dial to amn radio

I want to give a little shout out to AMN Radio, the first* English language, Asian American radio programming in the United States. Broadcasting every Saturday night at 11:00pm on 1650 AM (Radio Seoul) in Los Angeles, they're trying to carve out a unique voice for Asian Americans on the airwaves.

Programming includes The CL Show, hosted by Christina Lee (the "CL" in the equation) and Eddie Kim, who interview interesting folks from around the community. More recently, AMN Radio launched the DTF (Dysfunctional Tenacious Family) Show with Walter Hong and Paul PK Kim, which aims for more edgy dude-talk humor.

AMN launched a couple of months ago, but I only recently had a chance to listen in. I haven't actually heard the shows on the air. Even if you're not in Los Angeles, you still listen to The CL Show and DTF Show on Radio Seoul's iPhone app or download them as podcasts from iTunes.

* AMN Radio claims it's the first English language, Asian American radio programming in the United States, but I'm pretty sure this isn't true. Whatever the case, it's good stuff. I'm a firm believer that the more voices we have out there -- in all media -- the better.
