Los Angeles has many cultural institutions and one of them is KPCC’s Off-Ramp.

After close to 11 years, the best radio show on Southern California is coming to a close. Host John Rabe and his crew of producers and interns have been bringing thousands of quirky, hilarious, heartbreaking stories of this place to audiences.

AirTalk guest host Libby Denkmann celebrates Off-Ramp with John and his producers.

The final episode of Off-Ramp is airing this Saturday, July 1, at 1:00pm, and Sunday, July 2, at 6pm.
