362 & 363: My Week at The Magic Castle Parts 1 & 2

Postby Scott Wells » June 29th, 2017, 11:01 am

I have been in Los Angeles and otherwise tied up and was unable to post an update on the current podcast episodes. Last week's episode was the first of probably four installments of my annual series of podcasts featuring chats with many of the people in and around the Magic Castle. I record these podcasts while I am out there for the week performing. This year I was again one of the two performers in the Close-Up Gallery. The other guy was some unknown...uh, what is his name...oh yeah, Armando Lucero. :) He was awesome and his performance brought tears to my eyes. Listen for an upcoming exclusive chat with this outstanding performer. BTW, I think he has a legitimate shot at the AMA "Close-Up Magician of the Year".

Anyway, last week's podcast featured some chats with Trish Alaskey (Director of Membership at the Castle), Martin Cox (who was the emcee in the Palace all week), John Greybeal (member of the Castle and also a Friend of The Magic Word), then a session with Howard Hamburg and concluding with a surprise visit from Diamond Jim Tyler who happened to be visiting the Castle that evening.

The current podcast is Part Two which starts off with a chat with Gay Blackstone who talks about her new fourth season of "Masters of Illusion" which debuts on the CW network on June 30th. Turning around, I noticed Milt Larsen at the Palace bar so we chatted at length about many projects that he is involved with even at his advanced age. What a guy! We then wrap it up with a chat with my good friend, Allen Gittelson, who assisted in the editing of the "Psychological Subtleties" book series.
