Iconic American radio DJ Art Laboe is, to use a term from his own phrasebook, a quintessential "oldie but goodie." A staple on airwaves for more than half a decade, Laboe has become a veritable radio institution with his familiar baritone voice and friendly on-air demeanor. A bulwark of old school values in an increasingly trend-hungry pop landscape, Laboe once again pays honor to the classics in 2014 at his annual block party, featuring a star-studded lineup of acts including The S.O.S Band, Klymaxx, and Evelyn Champagne King.
Born in Salt Lake City in 1925, Art Laboe started his first radio show from a Los Angeles drive-in restaurant, taking down requests and giving on-air dedications. Tracking the popularity of songs through the requests he received, Laboe assembled and released Oldies But Goodies in 1959, the first compilation album of hit songs in American history. An tireless LA radio presence throughout the '60s and '70s, Laboe received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on July 17, 1981 — a day the city now recognizes as "Art Laboe Day." After more than half a century on the air, Laboe continues to treat audiences to his signature old school charm each night on the nationally syndicated Art Laboe Connection.
