Episode #100: Arches & Aqueducts

Join us this week as we talk with Downey historian George Redfox about one of his city’s gems, the oldest surviving “golden arches” style McDonald’s drive-in restaurant. We’ll also talk with artist Kim Stringfellow about “After the Aqueduct,” a multimedia group exhibition at LACE exploring Southern California’s growth, the Owens Valley, the Los Angeles Aqueduct and the ongoing conversations sparked by the issue of water in the West.

We’ll also discuss how a fan brought a lost Jungleland poster back into production, a chance to help save the GLASSELLLAND sign and the recent fatal shooting on Skid Row. All this and more as Kim & Richard usher in the week of March 9th, 2015.
