Back on Total SF + Upcoming Author Talk!
Bob Calhoun is back on the San Francisco Chronicle's Total SF podcast. This time host and Chronicle culture critic Peter Hartlaub talk about the wonder of engineering that was the Circle Star Theatre in the Bay Area suburb of San Carlos where stars ranging from Frank Sinatra to Cheech & Chong performed on a space age lazy Susan that spun very slowly throughout the show so everyone in this "theater in the round" could see. "Not a bad seat in the house," was the catch phrase often trumpeted in the ads that frequented the pages of the Chron.
"I have to say it's great not to be talking about murders for a change," Bob tweeted, but Peter Hartlaub did mention The Murders That Made Us during the show, calling it, "a great san Francisco history and Bay Area history, and not just about murders.'
'I'm not a big true crime guy, but it's not a true crime book, it's more than that."
