March 30, 2020 (Pala) -- With the “new normal” and the gravity of current events beginning to sink in, it’s time to lighten the mood.  Towards that end, Rez Radio 91.3 will suspend all regular programming for one full day and replace it with nothing but novelty songs, stand-up comedy and other classic funny, funny bits that we call “Rez Radio LOL”.  It begins at 1 a.m. Wednesday, April 1 and continues all day and night ending with Wednesday night’s Old Time Radio Hour at midnight featuring “Fibber McGee & Molly” and “The Red Skelton Show."  As always, we’re ready to break in with any urgent news.  But this Wednesday is designed to be a much needed day off for everyone.

April 1, 2018 (La Mesa) – Today, a group of business owners outside the downtown village have announced an innovative plan to provide both free transportation for La Mesa farmer’s market shoppers and incentivize their customers to patronize village eateries.

The action comes after La Mesa’s City Council last week approved moving the Farmer’s Market to the downtown village, to the delight of many but the dismay of some shoppers concerned about lack of parking, as well as restaurants fearful of losing patrons on Friday nights.
