SGV 015: Chris Greenspon - The Unauthorized Autobiography
/

SGV Weekly began as (and remains) my love letter to the San Gabriel Valley. We have great stories here, and my wife said I should include my own. Last season, I opened each show with a personal monologue, but I’m tired of doing that every time and this seemed like a good way to get it out of my system.

Why should I be a guest on my own show? That’s the central question a panel of Valleros asked me. Obvious answer: it’s a show about people doing stuff in the SGV – I’m a people doing stuff in the SGV! But it ended up being a journey to the center of my halfie mind: where Mexican-Jewish pride basted in Catholic-Jewish guilt roasts over a fire of love for the 626.

Interviews by Richard Garcia, Alex Aguilar, Dominic Angel, Romeo Guzman, and Roxanne Turner-Greenspon.
Special thanks to John Rabe, Fred Missman, Paul Gomez, Nick Roman, Tammy Trujillo, and Sharon McNary.
SGV Weekly is proudly sponsored by Dr. Rubin’s Pomade and South El Monte Arts Posse.
