19 Oct That’s AMAZING! Celebrating Huell Howser’s Birthday
It should come as no surprise that quite a few of us at FoLAR are big fans of public broadcast television. We’re also grateful for the sensitive soul of Huell Howser, who celebrated California’s cultural treasures up and down the golden coast.
Huell Howser was a Friend of the LA River and dedicated numerous episodes to showcasing the nooks & crannies and the personalities of our River. He also made space in his program for FoLAR leadership including our founder Lewis MacAdams and our VP of Programs, Shelly Backlar.
Take a trip down the River and memory lane as we honor the late, great Huell Howser and celebrate our beloved Los Angeles River. (We’re still trying to track down the ORIGINAL 1994 episode.)
