I checked the website for California Gold, but found nothing listed.

However, they are always taking recommendations for future shows. I sent off an email suggesting a show on California's Tiki culture. If enough people suggested it, they just might do it.

Oceanic Arts doesn't serve Mai-Tais. They won't even serve you during their lunch break.

I don't know about that. I'm told Bob and LeRoy serve a mighty good Mai Tai. I think you might have to twist their arms a bit, but they might set it up on a slow day.

I am glad this finally is becoming a reality. HH has been talking for years about doing something with OA (and the Tiki Ti, which used to be his hangout), he even came by the first (or was it the second?) Tiki Oasis...but nothing ever happened after that.
He has such a line up of stories, he's in no hurry for finding subject matters. Having taped it just last week, it might take months, maybe half a year to air...or not. Hopefully OA will let us know when.
And I agree, OA does not serve Mai Tais on a regular basis, but I am sure the back room bar was opened for this local TV royalty.

Louie, come look at this!

A few years ago HH. did a piece about Bruce Meyers. (Who invented the Dune Buggy. (but won't say so for fear of litigation)I was really bummed to have missed the airing of it.

Anyway, if it has somehow already aired, you can buy copies from the University of San Diego.

They aired that one -- at least on the KQED -- just a week ago.

Cheers,

I don't know how many sent a suggestion to Huell about doing a segment on "OA", but I did last month. I can hardly wait to see it.

You know, that just might have been the trigger to make him do it, it is always a matter of right time/right place.

I heard that the Mai Tai effects were grossly exaggerated, and merely a slanderous rumor!

I also heard that it might air sometime in November.

Ok, I just got off the phone with Huell Howser. He told me he recently did a piece(show) at Oceanic Arts in Whittier, CA. He interviewed Leroy Schmaltz and Bob van Oosting and it is scheduled to air in November. Huell told me the dates and times are 11/10 @ 6pm & 12:30am and again on 11/22 @ 6pm & 12:30am. It will air on PBS (KCET for us LA locals.) What a nice guy Huell is! He is very interested in the TIKI HISTORY of California!!! After talking with him I am sure there will be more shows regarding TIKI in the near future!!!
I can't wait to see and hear the stories Leroy and Bob talk to Huell about!

Huell has known about us (Polynesian pop enthusiasts) for some time now, we have proof! Santacon archived images! And darn it, isn't he one himself? I have to say it, what on earth has taken him so long to get a tiki segment together, sheesh! Don't get me wrong I love THE Huell but why hasn't he done anything for the tiki sooner?
Yea for Bob n' Leroy and everyone at OA. Sounds like a fun episode! I can't wait to see it!
My prayers have been answered...Huell and tiki together, finally!

Well it's about Muther-F*ckin' time... I tried to get his interest in Tiki 3 1/2 years ago but didn't think he'd ever do anything on it. Here's the original thread --
