Join us this week as we talk with historian Philip Mershon as he reveals the inspirations behind his 90-minute Sunset Boulevard entertainment history walking tour and his Felix In Hollywood Tour Company. We’ll also visit with 80-something Myllie Taylor, a colorful longtime resident of La Mirada, for a sampling of her adventures growing up in Boyle Heights, then the most diverse neighborhood in all of Los Angeles.

We’ll also discuss two landmark nominations in Hollywood up for consideration at the Cultural Heritage Commission, a bungalow court containing four cottages done in Storybook style and a Pueblo Style Revival. All this and more as Kim & Richard usher in the week of March 24th, 2014.
