Program Description

Model RR / Garden Railroad w/ Smaus at the home of Gayle and Louis Najera , Palos Verde, CA (8:07)

Smaus in: "Welcome to Palos Verdes, California..." Smaus out: "We'll be back, you can count on it." Note that in the middle of the piece Smaus says: "Maybe I'll ask for one for Christmas, that's not too far off, is it." (could be taken as sarcastic, but didn't sound that way, sounded like Christmas really wasn't far off. But not a big point, since it could be taken as hyperbole.) [May not be usable as repack since the we can't seem to contact the Najera's any longer. (as of 8/21/95) They may no longer be in Pacific Palisades. Russ said, ~3/96 to go ahead and use it since we made a good faith effort to contact them.], leeks, Rodger Eliot (Australia) & Gwen Eliot, 377 Cambridge Rd., Montrose, Victoria 3765, ph. 011-61-3-728-3492]
