Here’s a trailer for the upcoming documentary Dana Brown made about his father Bruce:
Friday Announcement (for Tuesday): Becky Ebenkamp and I have been working really hard on what is definitely a first for us, a one-off documentary radio show sponsored by L.A.’s Metro rail for Dublab.com. The subject, based on my book “Riot on Sunset Strip: Rock ‘n’ Roll’s Last Stand in Hollywood” will focus on four clubs: It’s Boss, The Hullabaloo, Bido Lito’s and Pandora’s Box. Our special guests are Johnny Echols of the band Love, and Miss Pamela DeBarres, author of several books including “I’m With The Band: Confessions of a Groupie.” The social impact brought on by the Sunset Strip “riots,” both the immediate repercussions during the ’60s (Monterey Pop) and in the future (from the ’90s to now) will also be examined. Tune in, this coming Tuesday, and share with your friends.

The first person to use the term “greenhouse gases” was a Swedish scientist named Svante Arrhenius in 1896. In a paper published that year, he made an early calculation of how much warmer the Earth was thanks to the energy-trapping nature of some of the gases in the atmosphere.
