Episode #63: Secrets of the Alleys & Valley
Join us this week as we talk with the magnificently mustachio’d historian Paul Greenstein about the old Llano del Rio colony in the Antelope Valley and its upcoming May Day centennial celebration. We’ll also visit with Chris Nichols to learn about “Bowlarama,” his exhibition of bowling center ephemera, artifacts and design, which is currently on view at the A+D Museum.
We’ll also discuss Brent C. Dickerson’s newly published history, “Narciso Botello’s Annals of Southern California 1833 – 1847,” the status of the Zanja Madre discovery under the Blossom Plaza project in Chinatown, the discovery of a portion of the Temple Block under the City Hall Lawn, the restored footage of Union Station on opening day (May 3, 1939), rumors surrounding the sale of the Broadway Trade Center and our serious concerns as LA’s Department of Recreation and Parks pushes on with its RFP for a new tenant to operate and maintain Highland Park’s historic Lummis Home, pushing out longtime tenant/steward, the Southern California Historical Society. All this as more as Kim & Richard usher in the week of April 28th, 2014.
