The next ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse, Friday, 06/20) will be all about the City of Angels and surrounding environs. I think this is one of my better shows, but you be the judge.

Consider this a primer for out-of-state Tribbles making their way to this year’s TribbleFest at Disneyland. 😉

Hope you can stop by, listen to the show, and join us in chat!
