The Pilot #39: The Secondhand Lion Jeff Asher Part I

10/06/2015 WalterandFonz spend the afternoon with Jeff Asher, a true Angelino who had an influence in creating the fabric of this city and Southern California. A man who lettered in basketball and went to school with Jackie Robinson at UCLA told stories of going to Hollywood High School during World War II as well as how a bottle of whiskey may have saved his life while in combat during the war. We spend the afternoon hearing how he later helped create Magic Mountain, Sea World, as well as his time in the entertainment industry working for Kirk Douglas during the making of Spartacus. We chat about his good friend Richard Riordan, the Pantry & Buddhism?!!! A great day that made for an incredible show!
