Part One of Three. Will Durst and Willie Brown jump right back to the electric mode that made for a great local San Francisco Talk Radio Morning Show in 2006. At the time of this new recording, Trump had narrowed down his VP selection to 3. We joked about Newt Gingrich and Chris Christie and barely mentioned Mike Pence. Bland is not funny.
Recorded LIVE Tuesday, July 12th, 6-7pm with a packed house at The Marsh Theater, San Francisco, CA The program aired Sunday July 17th on AM 1080 KSCO, and KSCO.COM 7-8PM. We’ll post segments 2 and 3 shortly.
The prospect of Trump and Gingrich, both of whom have married and cheated on at least 2 of their 3 wives, respectively, provided one of the best laughs Tuesday for our packed house at The Marsh. RADIO version airs ON AIR and ON LINE on AM 1080 KSCO, and KSCO.COM 7-8PM on this Sunday, July 17th. Our San Francisco Point Of View is content TV and Radio outlets in The City need. It’s the antidote to the echo chamber syndicated shows. A clip of the interchange between Will Durst and Willie Brown, with Producer/Announcer Paul Wells, is to be found at our Facebook Page. The show will be posted here shorty. Enjoy!: CLICK HERE

Sad to report that our friend Wilkes Bashford passed away this week after a long battle with Cancer. His relationship with Willie Brown was not just as his Clothier, but one of his closest friends. Part of a group of 4 that met every Friday for lunch at Le Central in San Francisco. Wilkes was a guest on our program back in September of 2014. We had a great time. Wilkes joins us in Segment 3. He lived a very full life. One of the individuals that gives San Francisco it’s character, gone at 82. You can watch the TV version of the Will and Willie show with Wilkes by clicking here
That was one of the working titles of the program, along with the SFPOV, San Francisco Point Of View. We increased the previous rating of the nationally syndicated show that preceded us by 50%, and exceeded the one that followed us the next year. Our afterglow as a Morning Radio Show was the ratings into the November 2006 Elections. We returned as a Podcast, added video, then returned as a TV and Radio Show. Since leaving the Gold Dust Lounge earlier this year, we remain in search of a new location, as Da Mayor likes an audience, and Will Durst is, after all, a stand up comedian. And a sponsor. No 2015 Holiday Show this year, but Producer Paul Wells, aka Lobster, returns to mornings for a December run a 97.7 The River, Classic Rock for the North Bay Monday-Friday 6-10am. Lobster’s Sunday Brunch has been on-the-air there 10a-3p since 2008. Paul has produced and anchored morning radio shows in San Francisco, San Jose and Los Angeles. See you in 2016. Here’s last year’s wrap up, with our guests SF Public Defender Jeff Adachi and SF Giants VP Russ Stanley, who brought his Championship Rings to that point:

After two years of doing our program from our Pop-up Studio from the back of The Gold Dust Lounge at Fisherman’s Wharf, we’re looking for a new venue. Thanks to Nick Bovis and family for support, and the opportunity to spread the news about Lefty O’Doul’s Drink Mixes since our show was on Radio and KOFY TV 20 in 2012. So, we’re also looking for a new sponsor. Now that the Political Campaigns of 2015 are done, and the droning of the millions of dollars of TV ads, etc. is over for the moment, let’s take a look back, before we take our next step forward.
