CALAMAR'S ROAD OPENS, LEADS TO KCSN

The local socials blew up with disbelief recently when it was revealed that longtime DJ Gary Calamar would be exiting L.A. public radio outlet KCRW. Calamar, a gifted music supervisor and a singer/songwriter in his own right in addition to being a beloved local radio personality, hosted "The Open Road," one of the best shows on the Santa Monica station where he was an on-air personality for 25 years.

But Calamar's "radio vacation" was short-lived, as he's been grabbed by another SoCal outlet, KCSN (88.5FM), where he'll begin broadcasting on 10/7 in the 5-7pm slot.

GM/PD Sky Daniels sang the praises of his "keen sensibility," and adding "His instincts for melody make him a wonderful addition to the 88.5 FM staff."

Added Calamar, "I am thrilled to get behind the microphone at KCSN, where we share a love for adventurous pop music both timely and timeless."

Later, Gary declined to take calls from a HITS editor asking for a superset of Phil Manzanera, Brinsley Schwarz and Spoon.
