According to FCC documents, the LA-based hip-hop radio station KDAY is in the process of being sold. News of the sale resulted in speculation that the station might shift from old school rap to Mandarin-language talk radio.

KDAY has been an L.A. institution for years, launching the LA rap scene in the '80s and early '90s, helping then little-known artists like Dr. Dre and Snoop Doggy Dogg get noticed.

Oliver Wang of Soul-Sides.com joins the show with more.
