About KaRi and TPSradio

"KaRi" is the nickname for "Karen Marie", claimed a few years ago while answering a crank call at LB's Rape Hotline. "Carry" is pronounced just like "cash & carry" but is spelled K-a-R-i, just for the fun of it. ( There is no "air" about the name whatsoever, no need to pronounce it funny :) The passion is podcasting, the ultimate fit for this part-time Postal Worker's personality.

ThePrimeSpot Radio Show began in 1999 at Long Beach City College when KaRi tried to unsuccessfully donate her collection of 20 music CD's to the station. Ray Burton suggested taking a class to connect with a DJ wanting to play local music. There were none so her short-wave am show was born at klbc AM soon after. In 2000, under the recommendation of am radio producer Jayson Campadonia (and former klbc manager), TPSradio approached CSULB's student-owned and run station and began broadcasting via internet:, founded by 's Mike Soultanian in his dorm room in the late nineties and was "Papa" to many popular shows including BritClub, The Succubus Club, and the one hosted by the DJ @ Fingerprints. TPSradio continued under the helm of John Trapper, Rusty Savage and currently Ray Hernandez. Mike Stark (dot net of and formerly of CSULB's ksul), introduced TPSradio to , Craig Breit and Dennis Clare in Summer and The Prime Spot finally expanded to a second campus Summer of 2005.

TPSradio is loosely formatted (think "Late Night Talk Show meets Your CD Player" or a Talk & Music "audio blog.") All genres of LOCAL music are played, focusing on bands with upcoming shows. The target market is demographic, specifically "The 562" area (code) of Southern California, All Peoples. Specific programming includes First Fridays (Poetry with Murray), Second Mondays (Joe B. of and and Third Fridays (Deborah Dixon covers the SoCaLBlues music scene). Special cohosts have included Mo Power from Long Beach Community Television, Kelly Zirbes of HepCcoalition, Raechel of Kelso Booking. Stay tuned for DJ Wingard Manor from "The Pike", Erica from Good Vibes Productions and Shea from the Long Beach Party Project.

At times TPSradio features people "from the inside out", and many times, just plain ordinary folk who do and create great things.    Most recently a beautiful Iranian painter, a former political prisoner, gave a "virtual" tour of her Life, Terror, Art and Forgiveness. and 2006 opened with TPSradio host Poet G Murray Thomas sharing his need for a kidney (You must have 0+ blood to donate your kidney to Murray; call 562-804-5625 for more information); A street interview with one of the last to party with Jimi Hendrix, another with a host from Mark & Brian Radio.... Log on to to hear Postal Workers on Parade, and "Take Five" with Dr. John Gray, who recently passed through The 562. (Note: MeetUps are a regular exception to "The 562" rule).
