There used to be this kind of well known DJ that broadcast from Princeton that used to pronounce it that way. I think — have to check my noggin from time to time.

I’ll look it up, but IIRC even at the time Chandler was writing there was this ‘old school’ pronunciation of Los Angeles that they were using to weed out the ‘newcomers’ (lol, this is in like 1930)— and the old school pronunciation, Chandler mentions somewhere, is what we’d think of as the super Anglo one. Los Angul-lees.
