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
