jazzbo collins on ksfo --- used to do his shows 3 sheets to the wind -- golden era of radio in san francisco
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm pacific standard simon:

John Huston really knew how to bring out the best in character actors.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm pacific standard simon:

Listening to Jazzbeau on -- I think -- KFI in Los Angeles is one of my earliest specific radio memories.
Avatar 1:44pm Joe non Papa:

Speaking of John Huston, Rex, didn't you once say his "Fat City" was your favorite movie?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47pm pacific standard simon:

Since we'll have to wait til the DJ break for the answer to that, I'll just chime in that The Maltese Falcon, another Huston film, is MY favorite.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56pm pacific standard simon:

I tried to get Fat City from Netflix (when I had a DVD sub) and they didn't have it.
Avatar 1:57pm Joe non Papa:

And the Maltese Falcon had Elisha Cook, as the gunsel, another FP Memorial honoree.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:58pm pacific standard simon:

Yep. Cook probably based the entire rest of his career on that one role.
Avatar 1:59pm Joe non Papa:

The novel "Fat City" is also fine reading. OP for years now.
Avatar 2:01pm Reeshard:

Saw Werner Herzog speak - at length - before and after a screening of 'Treasure Of Sierra Madre' at Hollywood Forever cemetery. Evidently it's one of his favorites, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm Guido from Cologne:

The John Huston episode of the Dick Cavett show is available on DVD.

Rex, you are always invited to my broke-ass city of Stockton, Cali to tour the Fat City spots...

anyone looking for a good read about what it was like in the 60's in laurel canyon should check out Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon by dave mcgowen

This just in -- the dance floor has collapsed! Authorities blame excessive foot-stomping.

This is the best Bat-record ever.

Take that badge out and have it fumigated!

You just know that kids in the Tri-State Area are dying to learn that Wombat Twist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm pacific standard simon:

Wake up and smell the badges!
  3:01pm P-90:

Thanks, Rex. I always know I can count on you to deliver the goods. Every damn week. Adios!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm Greg from Bloomfield:

Thanks, Rex!
Avatar 3:02pm Joe non Papa:

FP stinkin' badges - what a great idea for a DJ premium at the next marathon.

Who's got a Vacu-form toy?
