Thanks Soccer Tiki for getting the exact dates and times, the OA boys deserve all the recognition they can get/are getting.

Good one, Dawn Tiki! I love that you remembered that picture. At the time that Santacon pic was taken, Huell had been expressing an interest in doing a show or small series about SoCal Tiki to Sven.

Huell showed up at Oasis on a Sunday that year after most had gone home, but fortunately many principal players remained and he interviewed them. Still, the anticipated Howser shows did not materialize.

Santa visited Farmer's Market later that year and as usual this sight of bad, ribald and just plain cheesy revellers is difficult to ignore. It just so happened that Huell was there to witness the assault.

Oh, my gosh, what is this, he wanted to know and the ones he asked were the Tiki Clauses. Even though he's Huell, he was still given the boilerplate responses. "Who put this together?" Answer: "Santa". And so on. I finally said, "Santa's undercover. Santa doesn't need the publicity". Huell goes, (imagine this in the Howser delivery)

"Well, how 'undercover' could it be?!"

as he looks around at these dozens of drunken Kringle defamers streaming around the marketplace. Point partially taken, you friendly, yet tiki denying bastard. I then took the opportunity to ask, "What happened to the tiki shows you were going to do?"

If I recall correctly he answered that these shows take time, or somesuch flimsy non-answer. Anybody else that was there, feel free to fill in details. That's what I have to say about that.

off the Huell and OA topic for a minute...I would love to see some of the chaos and hijinx that ensues at Santa Con without actually having to be there? Legal reasons Any chance of you setting up a "Santa Con Cam" this year Floratina? Ok, Back to you Huell...

I talked to Bob at Oceanic Arts today. He says the interview with Huell was a lot of fun...They're all looking forward to seeing the finished copy in November. They are VERY BUSY at O.A (so if you have any tiki decoration plans, you better get over there and get your supplies!!!! I was lucky enough to pick up a thatch umbrella covering as they sell out in hours when they get a shipment in!!!) Anyway, from talking to Huell and Bob, it sounds like this upcoming episode (Nov. 11, 6pm & 12:30 and Nov. 22 same times) is one you want to get on tape!!!!!

Dawn -

Even if Santa stayed in one place throughout the event I would still lack the expertise, equipment and clearance to carry off a webcast. Santa is restless, drunk, in a state of chaos and constantly on the move. Looks like you and Frank will have to suit up and join in!

Huell Howser's website lists the airdate on his home station (KCET) to be on November 10, at 6 p.m. Be sure to check your local listings to learn when you can catch it where you live.

I just set the TIVO to record it. It's listed under Visiting...With Huell Howser.

My local PBS channels (KQED and KTEH) don't air the "Visiting... with Huell Howser" series, just "California's Gold". I desperately hope I am wrong, but I can't find any listings for the "Visiting..." series on PBS in the Bay Area.

Huell sells the video of the tiki episode of "Visiting..." on his website, it's episode #1310, the title of it is "Tiki", of course.

Now I have Tivo envy.

Yes, it will also air at 12:30 am (the 11th) and again on 11/22 at 6pm and again 12:30 am....(That's according to Huell)

(using my Huell voice) Oh my God, that's truly spectacular!

Say, have any of you seen when Huell was on the Simpsons? It was hilarious...
