The historic building was demolished long ago, but the legacy of the Hip Hop youth center prevailed in those kids. Thirty years later they gather to celebrate the Los Angeles politics of youth culture.

1980’s, MacArthur Park was a battlefield arena for new chemical drugs, and there was the gang control venture over the traditional homies of Mid-Wilshire. Stage Of The Arts, Inc. was founded 1982 and presented theater shows at an storefront theater by Bonny Brae Street. The Radiotron Club was born.
Summer 1983, performer storyteller Carmelo Alvarez came back from New York to his MacArthur Park neighborhood. Carmelo became a youth cultural advocate, and lead Radiotron to procure their own building: The Radiotron Youth Cultural Center by Park View Street, where the legacy of popping and graffiti art exploded into the breakdancing fever of Hip Hop decades.
Stage Of The Arts, Inc. mission is to promote and develop multiethnic, international arts and cultural awareness in the City of Los Angeles, and to establish programs for research and community development, providing working space and affordable housing for artists, including traditional arts forms as well as communication technology based on computer applications.
