"Something's Happening" with Roy of Hollywood turns 44

RoyA veteran of radio for nearly 50 years, Roy of Hollywood goes on at midnight with his program called “Something’s Happening,” heard in Southern California on KPFK 90.7 FM.  Rather than talking to himself, Roy of Hollywood plays interviews, poetry readings, lecture tapes, and even old radio broadcasts of mystical people like Alan Watts, Thom Hartmann, Danny Sheehan, Jack Gariss, and many more.

"I've enjoyed the many years I have worked with Roy. His wisdom and passion for what he does have inspired my dedication to KPFK and deep respect for Pacifica's history. He has many stories that have taken me back before my time" - Anyel Z. Fields, General Manager
