He did more to inform the people of this state than any one.

Loved his show but stay away from some of the eating establishments he visited. They weren’t that good.

Always got the impression he was a conservative guy. The article says he donated his papers Chapman University which is a conservative college.

During the LA riots, I remember seeing footage of him and some of his neighbors confronting looters at a local supermarket and stopping them from looting the place.

He was a good guy.

Sad news. I lived most of my life in Southern California, but I wasn’t raised there. I learned more about the history of California and places all over the state from him than any other source. He seemed like a genuinely nice guy, too.

Sad to hear...I always loved “California’s Gold.” He had such an upbeat and happy attitude with all the people he visited and chatted with. I learned a lot about my state (at least the way it used to be in the good ole days).

What was the reason you included how he had sex?

That's a good question. What does unnatural sexual perversion and sodomy have to do with anything? It's all normal now.
Especially in California.

His show on Gills Onions in Oxnard, CA is a classic that should not be missed.

Thank you Huell for showing me the wonderful side of California.

And dont forget the museum of printing:

http://www.printmuseum.org/

Don’t miss taking the most informative tour there. You will learn a lot.

Oh, grow up.
It had nothing to do with this man’s career which the poster was admiring.
