Hawaiian Isle: 1966 (from the video archives)

Another one from the family archives...Here's a glimpse of the Hawaiian Isle Motel in Miami Beach, circa 1966. Even at one-and-a-half years of age, I think my enthusiasm for all things Tiki is obvious... right from the opening scene when I run straight for the motel entrance. Check out the nice font on the sign... and the huge Tiki out front.

Where is That Confounded Bid?

Mike and Michelle sell records at our Pasadena swap meet. They just launched a huge eBay sale for soul, funk, R&B,  jazz, etc. 45s, so I figured I'd share a fave local find with the Lux crowd. I counted more than 600 discs, and sound clips are included so there's no risk in buying a cruddy-sounding dud. (Note: Apparently you have to click on this blog entry to access the HTML auction link.)
