Upcoming Event: Hello, Chief? If you ever wanted to see the original screen-used props and costumes from 1960s spy shows and films, your chance is coming up soon as LA prepares for a special event and exhibit. Danny Biederman (The Incredible World of Spy-Fi) will be hosting an evening at the Hollywood Heritage Museum in October! This is a rare opportunity for Spy Vibers to see his amazing collection up close. From the press release: "On Tuesday, October 17th, 2017 at 7:30PM Hollywood Heritage and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will be kicking off the new season of the Evening @ the Barn series with a unique event on a special night! The Incredible World of Spy-Fi will feature a discussion on and a selection of Danny Biederman's world-famous original props from iconic spy movies and TV shows. Included in the display will be the famous shoe phone from Get Smart and the pen communicator from The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Mr. Biederman will also be selling and signing copies of his book The Incredible World of SPY-FI. Following an intermission, the museum will present a screening of Mr. Biederman's "Hollywood Spytek", a documentary that contrasts the similarities between real spies and their fictional counterparts. The event will also feature a display of vintage spy toys from the 1960s! Don't miss this very rare opportunity to view Mr. Biedermans spy artifacts which have previously been displayed at the CIA Headquarters in Langley, Virginia and the Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California. There will also be a raffle consisting of related DVDs and books! Seating is limited. Doors open at 7:00PM. Free parking is available in the Hollywood Bowl Lot D." Tickets available here. Promo video below. If you haven't seen Danny's book yet, I highly recommend it. Just seeing pages devoted to Patrick Macnee's bowler and Diana Rigg's leather trousers from The Avengers is worth the price of admission!

That was an exciting milestone! In other news, check out my episodes of the Cocktail Nation radio show, where I introduce classic spy films/TV series and play soundtracks and rare cuts: Episode #1 (Danger Man) and Episode #2 (The 10th Victim), Epsiode #3 (On Her Majesty's Secret Service), Episode #4 (Roger Moore/The Saint), and Episode #5 (The Avengers). Episode #6 (The Prisoner), and Episode #7 (The Ipcress File). Enjoy!
