THE BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!!
I am launching my own guided tour company!
|Get off the bus and take a walk with me!|
"...In A Place Called Hollywood: a stroll through the first 100 years of Tinseltown."
I have designed and scripted a fascinating exploration of the 7 block stretch in Hollywood where it all began. We'll talk about how Hollywood (the town) happened and why Hollywood (the business) happened here. We'll discover the origins of 4 major film companies, 3 radio networks, 3 television networks, 3 record companies, and 2 world class recording studios with a list of hit records to their credit that will knock you off your feet. There are tons of stories, anecdotes, facts, gossip and fun! I've also compiled a wonderful book of photographs to show you what it all looked like.
Following My Bliss
This is a topic that I love, and have researched and studied, literally for years, and I'm a born story teller. That combined with the fact that I will walk to work, and walk for work make this a rather perfect thing. I've given this tour about a dozen times now to a broad range of people from Old Hollywood Geeks like us, to people who think that Hollywood means TMZ and the latest reality star, and everyone has loved it.
What It Is And How To Play
Tours will begin on September 24th and presently will be offered twice daily at 1pm and 4pm. They are available on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. More times and more days will be added as they become necessary. All of the tours will be intimate (generally 6 to 8 people), and they will last about an hour and 45 minutes. There are lots of great restaurants on the tour route so if you want a drink or a bite to eat before or after the tour, there's no need to go any further. Make an afternoon of it. It is a 1 mile walking tour, so throw on some sunscreen, some comfortable (yet stylish) shoes, grab a camera, and let's go!
**Here's a Thought** Get a group together and combine the tour with a meal at one of the local restaurants for a great Birthday Event!
The cost of the tour is $30, but for a grand opening special, let's knock off $5 and make it $25. I'll make that price good till the end of Thanksgiving weekend (Nov. 28).

By Now You're Probably Thinking, "What A Terrific Idea, How Can I Help?"
Well kiddies I'll tell ya. The success and growth of this company necessitates that I become a publicity whore. So if you want to blog about it, or Facebook about it, or Tweet about it, you'd be doin' me a solid. If you know anyone from an L.A. hotel concierge; let them know. If you know any body in newspapers, magazines, radio or
TV (!!Jackpot!!), have them email me. I am open to all media requests.
Needless to say, in addition to the regular content that you've come to expect, this blog will be faithfully reporting on progress of things. You guys are the best, thank you.
Now here's a little music for ya!
