Listen to Episode #109!
Join us this week as we talk with Roger E. “Waldo” Kislingbury, Pasadena impresario and Old West aficionado, about his new book, “American Saloons: Pre-Prohibition Photographs.” We’ll also talk with Gail Phinney, Education Director at the Palos Verdes Art Center, about the exhibition she co-curated, “Palos Verdes Modern,” a retrospective of mid-century architecture on the peninsula.
We’ll also discuss the sale of the landmark Gothic Art Deco Foreman & Clark building at 7th and Hill Streets, community rallies to protect the Bob Baker Marionette Theater from redevelopment threats, an uncertain future for the huge tile mural outside the doomed Port of Long Beach Administration Building, neighborhood activists have saved their beloved 1923 bungalow court at 750 Edinburgh, Downtown’s 1937 Art Deco Federal Courthouse gets new legal stewards, we play matchmaker for a new series of 3-D photo scans of hard-to-access historic interiors starting with the hobo JK’s Tunnel and the Dutch Chocolate Shop, Pershing Square Renew to announce four finalists in their park redesign competition and the May 29 return of our free LAVA Sunday Salon and Broadway On My Mind walking tour series.
All this and more as Kim & Richard usher in the week of April 4th, 2016
