Your Club was proud to host Talkers magazine’s LA Regional Talk Forum, the first in a series of radio conclaves around the country.
An overflow crowd turned out at the Steve Allen Theater to hear from Larry King, Bill Handel, Stephanie Miller and dozens of other hosts, program directors and syndicators on the state of LA. Following an all-star panel on a critique of Los Angeles, his honor, the mayor, closed the all-day sessions, with a spirited list of his accomplishments, and a touch of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s self-deprecating humor: “I’m proud to report that in the last month no adult film was shot in Los Angeles with the use of a LAFP firefighter.”
