Huell Howser Around the Golden State

Huell Howser was on California PBS television for many years until his early passing in 2013 at the age of 67. Huell had several programs all built around him and a single camera/sound crew travelling around the Golden State. Huell talked to people,toured their homes, businesses, sites and spent 30 minutes having discovery conversations. Huell had been a news person in his home state of Tennessee, but in California he had conversations. Huell was fresh, believable and fun to follow. Huell was a bit travel agent,big kid, explorer and positive force. I myself have always enjoyed exploring our world and esp our state. There are places to go, people to meet, and fun things to do. Huell left us with at least 750 television shows which you can view at Chapman University. Chapman is the recipient of the entire Huell Howser estate and the University has developed an amazing display. Most important of which is a 45 minute documentary by JefferySwimmer about Huell entitled California Gold. My cohort inAVNice, Jim Greenleaf and I and a longtime dear friend Steve Kngsleytravelled to Orange, CA to view the film in March 2014.
