Question about Contacting Approach

I was flying a short flight from LAX to SBP in the TBM. I contacted approach and checked in and they said frequency change approved. I then requested an ILS approach to SBP and got told to follow instructions. Yes, I know I didn’t follow the instruction, but I wanted approach instructions. Please let me know what I’m missing.

did you contact LAX Approach? @eli_Mumm

SOCAL Approach

Yes,that’s basically approach for LAX that’s why they told you to change frequency.

I thought approach controlled approaches for all airports in their coverage area

nope it doesn’t …center frequency controls airports within the coverage
