Lindbergh Beacon | KCET
Huell traces the history of the 1928 Lindbergh Beacon, which was discovered at a city warehouse in the 1990s, restored to its original glory, and now shines over downtown Los Angeles from the top of City Hall. We also revisit Huell's original segment on the Beacon, when Project Restore rededicated the Beacon in the LAX terminal after a 50-year absence.
Join Huell as he spends a day at Descanso Gardens in La Canada to enjoy a good old-fashioned rally put on by the Automatic Musical Instrument Collectors Association. Everything form show box size monkey grinders to huge organs that once traveled through Europe, it’s a treat for the eyes and ears.
Huell often spends his weekend mornings enjoying the many local Farmers Markets in Los Angeles. On one fateful day, he met a farmer who had a poster board loaded with photos of his beloved goat "Clementine". This began a journey to meet Clementine and hear the story of this remarkable animal and the man who saved her.
Huell goes to six different restaurants in L.A., including Olvera St. Juanita’s and La Luz Del Dia.
You’ve seen the giant windmills alongside the road to Palm Springs. Well now you can learn all about them with Huell as he gets a special “Wind Farm Tour” in an electric cart. This is a great place to learn about one of mankind’s earliest forms of energy.
Huell travels to the Eastern Sierras with the DWP to visit Owens Lake to see their efforts to minimize the dust problem that has plagued the surrounding communities for many years and also learn a little bit about the history of the lake.
