The City in 1955 – It Hasn’t Changed Much, except for the rents and the cars and the homeless and the… just watch the video!

There is a link to a wonderful video of San Francisco in 1955 posted on Facebook’s FormerKGOListeners page by Lisa Vande Voorde.  She found it on The Huffington Post.   It’s strange how the city hasn’t changed too much since then, except for the model of cars and buildings practically on top of buildings.  It’s a fun peek at the past.

Jim Gabbert filled in for Gene Burns today.  It sounds like it might be a month before Gene will be able to return to the air.  I’ve always dismissed Gabbert as the weird guy who runs that oldies dance show on weekend tv, but there is a lot more to him than that – to hear him tell it.  I was busy at work so I wasn’t able to hear most of his show so I’ll have to get to the podcast and listen again.

You can hear Len’s podcasts here as well.  The Loy’ah is there every week day from 3:00pm – 4:00pm.

Gil Gross will be sitting in for Gene on Wednesday.  Gawd, I miss Gil on the radio.  I used to look forward to his show everyday.

damn Cumulus…

 

By the way, was anyone listening to Wattenburg’s broadcast today on KSCO and happen to hear that 90-year-old rant about virgin allotments?  I mean, what the…??  Was that supposed to be funny, as in humorous?  I didn’t know if I should feel sorry for that Kay lady or be angry.  It was too stunned to feel either.  All I could do was shake my head and step away from the computer…

Why is that woman on there every day rambling about nothing?  Don’t they have ads they can run?  Please have mercy on us, Santa Cruz.
