Stories

  • I've got some stories to tell you Sunday evening. There's the story about a painting that was purchased by the first Senator from Wyoming for his daughter to give to a friend. That painting was subsequently donated to a hospital in Cheyenne, Wyoming that was dedicated to the Senator's daughter, who, by the way was married to Black Jack Pershing and who was killed in a fire at the Presidio in San Francisco while Pershing was looking for Poncho Villa in Mexico. There's another story about a man from Brooklyn who was aboard the Enola Gay when it dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima--an unlikely hero who just happened to take the photo of the mushroom cloud. Then there's the story of an artist in Denver, Colorado who was a friend of Sharon Tate, Abigail Folger, and Roman Polanski. A man who, by the merest chance wasn't on Cielo Drive the night of the Manson murders. A man who had painted a picture in Abigail Folger's apartment that ended up being found in 2015 at an estate sale by a man who was a friend of Sharon & Abigail. There's the story of a woman who was standing in Dealey Plaza on November, 22, 1963 and when the Presidential limosine was about 10 feet away from her she took a photo of the President & Jackie at the exact moment of the fatal head shot. Oh, and in the background of that photo was "The Grassy Knoll." Then there's the story of finding Harry S. Truman's poker table in a basement in Denver a couple of years ago. So many stories! So many more stories yet to be told. These are just some of the stories to be found in the iAntique Video Archive. Who wouldn't want to be in this business? Please join us this coming Sunday evening, June 26, 2016 for this week's show. We're on at 5PM PDT, 6PM MDT, 7PM CDT, 8PM EDT. Gary
