The Lopsided World of L Archives
Berlin era crashes in a pleasantly annoying way. So many sounds you will wiggle in and out enjoying it. The return of Hamburg, Germany’s Rotersand is a welcome relief, Welsh band Helen Love will bring a guaranteed smile for you. Their song “First Girl From Wales In N.Y.C” is an homage to the Ramones, Eno G of Liverpool has a unique style, and Sweden’s Spiritual Beggars back with that rock sound that has been missing lately. Also another new song from Johnette Napolitano (Concrete Blonde). Your Rammstein song of the week is “Engel”, and don’t miss Madrid, Spain’s Lords Of Black.

About Jonathan L
Jonathan L's radio career began in March, 1982 in Tucson, Arizona at 96 Rock KLPX with his creation, "Virgin Vinyl." The show ran for more than four years on Sunday evenings for five hours from 7 p.m. to midnight.
In the summer of 1986, Jonathan moved up to Mesa, Arizona to start up alternative station KEYX 100.3 with his friend John "Johnny D" Dixon, referred to as "the key to your musical future." The station ended in late 1987. Many felt it was far too ahead of its time. Jonathan was the assistant program director and music director, and held down the 7 p.m. to midnight shift Monday though Friday.
By the late ‘90s, Jonathan L was considered a national go-to guy for alternative radio, and in a 1996 interview with New York Now, he rightly predicted “more British and rhythm-driven music shaking up the mid-90s cabal of American-born alterna-rock bands.”
In August 2005, Jonathan L returned once again to 98 KUPD, where he hosted and programmed “The Lopsided World of L” on Saturday mornings and Sunday nights in prime time live. Jonathan L remained there until his retirement from stateside radio in 2010.
Jonathan L currently lives in Berlin, Germany.
