The saga of Phil Spector’s murder castle in Alhambra… A chat with a young progressive delegate hopeful from Bassett… The rebirth of Dr Rubin’s World Famous Pomade… and a mystery meat lunch in Arcadia Regional Park.

This is our first compilation episode.

-First priority. If you are registered to vote in the ADEM Election, the deadline to submit your ballot is Wednesday 1/27. With Bassett education worker Aaron Simental, we discuss what his vision is for progressive politics in the 626. He’s running on this slate in the 48th District.

-Phil Spector died last Sunday. Finally. The Pyrenees Castle in Alhambra, where he took the life of actor Lana Clarkson 17 years ago, was a fortress of broken dreams long before the gun toting producer bought it in 1998. Now it could be yours.

-A brown paper bag deal gone right – the rich history of Dr Rubin’s world famous pomade, from an Army laboratory in WWII to a couple of rockabilly grease monkeys burning up the Eastside.

-What is that sausage-like substance in our noodles? And why does it compel us to hurl discs at each other?

-Ambient music by Kevin Greenspon
