With the advent of DC's great Jerry Williams photo inside the Kon Tiki...I stumbled across this...Jerry and family at Bob Lee's Islander in 1968...Jerry must have loved the Polynesian Pop!

Nice one OGR. I did a little more research on the subject. Jerry Williams read commercials on his radio show for Bob Lee's Islander. Here is a clip I found on-line:

"But I did visit Bob Lee's 'Islander' with my girlfriend at the time. It was as great an experience as Jerry had promised during his mouth-watering descriptions of the place for commercials. I wrote a letter describing our wonderful dining experience, but never heard a word from Jerry. Years later, I met a friend who said he had heard Jerry read my letter on the air as a fresh ad for Bob Lee's!

Another web post indicated that Jerry was such a regular that:

"On the drink menu at Bob Lee's islander, it listed the "Head Hunter" cocktail as "Jerry Williams' favorite drink".

I have not seen a menu with that reference, however, that does not mean that it does not exist.

And finally, cleaned up photo of the interior.
