Will & Willie 2016 Election Special #3 – TV

Sunday, September 18th, 2016

We spend a lot more time talking about Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump in Part One. An interesting theory about her pneumonia that’s kind of anti-Alex Jones. 

Part Two, we’re joined by guest Kelly Dessaint, writer of SF Examiner column I Drive SF, blogger and author. We tear into Taxis vs Uber/Lyft and driverless cars.

Part Three, our Q&A with the live audience. First surprise guest questioner is Hillary Crosby, Comptroller of the California Democratic Party köpa cialis. Someone uses the “L” word.

Roll the credits. Thanks to The Marsh Theater. Support their Non-profit performance space in SF and Berkeley. MZ and crew @ KSCO for airing our show. Ace & Hugh of Reality Check TV for on-sight A/V and video production. Producer/Moderator Paul “Lobster” Wells of Flow Communications. PR Leslie Kaye.

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

Congrats to “Your World Champion San Francisco Giants” for ending a losing streak with a sharp 4-1 victory after a 1st class, beautiful ring ceremony.  Was good to see Tim Flan return to do the National Anthem, and the Giants organization hand out the hardware.  2010, 2012 and 2014.  We had SF Giants VP Russ Stanley as a guest on our last show “pinch hitting” for Larry Baer.  He had his first two WS rings, and the 2007 All-Star game ring.  He also brought Giants stuff to give away for the Lefty O’Doul’s Toy Drive  and gloves for the Foundation.  In support of that, we did a drawing for a pair of tickets in the Giants’ field box. The winner, Gail, will be there to enjoy the Giants vs the Dodgers Tuesday, April 21st.  News on our next show To Be Announced soon.  In the meantime, THANK YOU to Larry, Russ and everyone on the team.  It was a very Merry Holiday Show.  Watch the fun segment.  Click Play

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 ???
