I remember seeing Alan Rich at the Ojai Music Festival a number of years back. At the entrance to Libby Park just a few minutes earlier I had seen Huell Hauser, whose PBS program California Gold I’ve always enjoyed. I greeted Alan and causually mentioned seeing Huell Hauser. I wondered aloud if Mr. Hauser was preparing a California Gold program on the Ojai Festival. Alan, mimicking the enthusiastic voice of Huell Hauser said “Wow, so this is a violin!” A little sarcastic, but I did laugh.
