How nice to see the Johnny Grant radio ad in your blog.
All of us concerned with preserving the heritage of old Hollywood should remember Mr. Grant with extreme gratitude. Without his efforts over the past 20+ years, Hollywood might still be a no-man's-land of decay, instead of the reborn tourist mecca it has become. Much of the drive toward restoring the area's luster came from Johnny Grant and his relentless boosterism for the town he loved.
Bless him for the effort, and hope he'll be spending eternity among the stars.
--I will always recall Johnny Grant fondly for hosting Gene Autry's outdoor memorial service on the grounds of the museum. He did a great job.
