WILKES BASHFORD REST IN PEACE

Sunday, January 17th, 2016

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

 

Where’s Will and Willie?

Friday, August 28th, 2015

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 try this web-site.  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.

Our 2014 Wrap-up and Holiday Party @ The Gold Dust Lounge, Wed Dec 17th, 6-7pm

Monday, December 8th, 2014

So much has happened this year, and Will Durst and Willie Brown have a long list and been checking it twice.  Who would have thought when Bill Cosby showed up at Willie Brown’s B-Day Party with a Candle on a Ball of Wax “Cake” in March, that his world and reputation would explode, and “Cos” would be a target for Gloria Allred by the end of the year?  In September, we made TV News with our guest John Burris talking about Ferguson, MO before the Grand Jury there ignited the response that has been taken to the streets.  Lots to talk about in just those two stories of the year, plus a look ahead at 2014 & 2015.

We’ll return to The Gold Dust Lounge at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco.  It will be Fun, it will be Festive, and it will be Free for you to be part of our “Pop-up” studio audience.  Deli Sandwich bites provided (while they last) by Lefty O’Doul’s.  We’ll have guests, and perhaps even a GIANT surprise.  Audience Q&A in the last of the four segments of the program.  Like people to bring new, kids baseball gloves as part of the Lefty O’Doul’s Foundation Annual Toy Drive.  After our taping, stay and party with us.  Happy Holidays (of your choice)!  Enjoy Chanukah, Winter Solstice, Christmas, Kwanza or ???
