Art Laboe has set several trends in the music industry. One of them was his endeavor to put together a record album featuring hit songs by several artists, originally released under different labels. Arranged under his own company ‘Original Sound Records’, this album was the first of its kind. Titled ‘Oldies But Goldies’, this album remained at the Billboard magazine’s Top 100 LPs chart for more than three years straight. Even though compilation of older albums is an ordinary thing to do in today’s music world, Laboe happens to be among the pioneers of this trend.
Another of his ‘first’ endeavors was the playing of Rock ‘n’ Roll on the West Coast Airwaves. As a Disc Jockey, Laboe happened to be the first one to play both black and white artists. He also had an ‘Elvis Hour’ on his radio show, where he only played Elvis Presley songs. Art Laboe was also the only person to get a radio interview from Elvis and the Colonel when they first came to Hollywood. Laboe was the first person to have a sold out Rock ‘n’ Roll concert, which he continues to do even till today.
Art Laboe started his radio show from the Scrivner’s Drive-In. The majority of the passers-by were teenagers around that area. They used to hang out and give live on-air dedications. Laboe prepared a list of songs most frequently requested and began to turn that idea into an album. Since the release of his first compilation album, the series has expanded to a total of fifteen volumes so far. In addition to the series ‘Oldies But Goldies’, Art Laboe has released another music series called as ‘Dedicated to You’.
The achievements of Laboe have also been officially acclaimed and awarded. On 17th July 1981, Art Laboe received a star on the Hollywood ‘Walk of Fame’ on the corner of Hollywood and Highland. The same day was declared as the ‘Art Laboe Day’ by The City of Los Angeles. In November 2003, Laboe was also added to the Palm Springs Walk of Stars. One year later Laboe received the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Hispanic Media Coalition. In 2005 at the Hollywood Arts Council Charlie Awards, Art Laboe received the Media Arts Award.
After a successful career spanning more than forty decades, Art Laboe has devoted half of his wealth and property in the up gradation of Hollywood. An acre of sunset landholdings sold by Laboe have been made the home of the Will & Ariel Durant Branch Library. Even today, Art Laboe continues his radio show with multiple times more listeners than there were in the start. His show is consistently top rated among the radio listeners.
