Lefty Gets Fired
Jan 31, 1970: Lefty Phillips was fired--the radio personality, not the Angels' manager.
KMPC decided to cancel the Lefty Phillips Show, which The Times' radio critic Don Page thought was a terrible idea. Not that the Phillips show was good radio.
"Some critics called Phillips' show a disaster--and it was," Page wrote. "It was a colorful, beautiful, charming, unequaled disaster."
