Wig Wam Motel
I dressed in my uptown cowgirl outfit and played my banjo. In character, I was aimin' to be cast on "Cliffie Stone's Hometown Jamboree" on KLAC lucky channel 13 in Hollywood! Larry dressed as a casual audience member of the era.
The Wig Wam Motel is the last of seven such establishments across the country. Many of our friends stayed for the night so we got to explore the little Wig Wam motel rooms. They were surprisingly roomy with very nice bathrooms...clean and efficient. The pool was characterically kidney-shaped and the park-like lawn area was perfect for our party. Many of our friends performed their "vod-vill" acts. The lovely Adriene and the accomplished Cuban Pete accompanied everyone on Hammond B-3 organ and the cocktail drums. Cuban Pete also gave some rousing renditions of popular Cuban songs of the day with his conga drum!
Thanks to Chris and Charlene for organizing a fabulous celebration. Happy Birthday, Chris!
