Episode #71 -- Golden Gate Bridge 50th Anniversary For May 24, 2007. 

Twenty years ago today marked the 50th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge.  An event that day when the bridge was closed to cars and open for pedestrians drew nearly three quarters of a million people -- a much bigger crowd than had been planned on!  The picture at the right, taken by John O'Hara of the San Francisco Chronicle has become the iconic image of that day.  I talk about the 50th anniversary event, as well as my own fascination with the bridge and its life and times.

Today's episode music is from "Sunlit Harbour," by Torchomatic.  Theme music composed and performed by Marc Rose.
