The Board of Supervisors proclaimed today “Art Laboe Day” in Los Angeles County in recognizing legendary rock n’ roll disc jockey, songwriter, record producer and radio station owner, Art Laboe, for his 66-year career in the music industry. Art Laboe provided his listeners with on-air song dedications and requests. Frequently requested songs were compiled into the first album in American history to feature hits by different artists. This album, “Oldies but Goodies,” stayed on Billboards’ top 100 for over three years. The first person to coin the term, “Oldies but Goodies,” Art Laboe’s stellar career is marked by many firsts in the radio and record business. He was the first disc jockey to play rock n’ roll on the west coast, to have a dedicated “Elvis hour” and, in conjunction with Dick Clark, to host the first-ever sold-out rock n’ roll concert at the Hollywood Bowl. A permanent display of Art’s numerous contributions is featured at the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. His syndicated radio show, “The Art Laboe Connection,” can be heard locally on K-Day 93.5 FM on Sundays from 6 P.M. to 12 A.M.
