KRLA BEAT, USA

      KRLA BEAT was published by the Los Angeles radio KRLA, 1964-1968. The newspaper evolved from little more than a four-page promotional throwaway to a unique, informative music newspaper. Its literary voice strengthened during the several years it was in print, veering away from bubbly prose about pop groups and offering original articles and photos of some of the biggest names of the day.
