Ep 89 - Back Again For The First Time
As I look out my window on a beautiful spring morning (I can tell it's spring because the birds and bees are acting like they're not interested when I know they're totally into me) I am reminded of that April I spent watching Rick Steves tell me about England.
Wonder no more, says I, as SK is inspired to talk like an aged Liverpool urchin. This week, in the Bomb Shelter, we are graced with none other than the real Tony Quarrington. Author, SF historian, tour guide, Dead head, bon vivant, and retired public employee (That's how he can afford to be a bon vivant), Tony fills us in on his special San Francisco hide outs and his Fabulous Folkestone Walking Tour.
Along the way we discuss tea rationing (a cause to celebrate), Illuminate the Arts (again), Friedel Klussmann (yes, that Friedel Klussmann), Martha's Coffee (to say nothing of her borscht), Mel Gibson's anti-angloism (Mel Gibson is: Shaka Zulu!), his book, A Half Forgotten Triumph (that's the title not a commentary) and of course Tony relates stories about his beloved adopted hometowns of San Francisco and Folkestone.
So have an earwig and get chuffed.
Visit Beautiful Folkestone with Tony's Fabulous Folkestone Walking Tours.
Here's the video we talked about for Obscura Digital working with Illuminate the Arts...
