New podcast #76: Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel lore & early avant garde gallerist Earl Stendahl.
Join us for YOU CAN’T EAT THE SUNSHINE this week as we visit with Richard Adkins, past-President of Hollywood Heritage, for insights into the early years of the legendary Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, home of the first Academy Awards ceremony in 1929. We’ll also talk with April Dammann, about “Earl Stendahl, Art Dealer as Impresario,” her biography of the avant-garde gallerist who counted numerous Golden Age Hollywood players among his clientele.
We’ll also discuss the illegal demolition of Historic Cultural Monument #870 the San Marino Villa in Koreatown, the “Our Skid Row” project seeking input from community residents, the demolition of the exquisite Robinsons-May department store in Beverly Hills and an update on attempts to erect a hillside art sign reading “Glassellland.
All this and more as Kim & Richard usher in the week of July 28th.
