    21 – Hugh “Chopper” King, From Pyromaniac to Militant Radical to TV Producer/Personality

    21 – Hugh “Chopper” King, From Pyromaniac to Militant Radical to TV Producer/Personality

    This time my conversation is with Hugh King (also known as "Chopper King.") When I interviewed Hugh, it was at his and his wife Karen’s cavernous concrete home in Los Angeles about ten years ago. What I’ve selected from our conversation for this podcast has to do with three distinct parts of Hugh’s life that I find especially interesting: 1) His childhood pyromania; 2) The part Hugh played in the anti-war “GI Coffeehouse Movement” during the Vietnam War in the late 1960’s and 70’s; and 3) The emergence of Hugh's "Chopper King" character from the TV shows Biker Build-off and Motorcycle Mania.

    20 – In London With Peter & Kath Hart

    20 – In London With Peter & Kath Hart

    This episode of Andy’s Treasure Trove features two great fans of my podcast, Peter and Kath Hart of London. When my family and I were in London a few years ago, we spent a very pleasant day with them, I presented them with some Andy’s Treasure Trove t-shirts, and recorded a short interview with Peter about things that he had mentioned during the day, including stories about his grandfather’s experiences in the British film industry, and the small village of South Ascot where he grew up. He also tells us about some British condiments that you might want to seek out and try. Kath chimes in at the end, and we parted company with warmth in our hearts and some insights into England that only real Brits could provide.

    19 – SPARKS – An Homage to Ron & Russell Mael

    19 – SPARKS – An Homage to Ron & Russell Mael

    This is my homage to my favorite band, Sparks, and the core of Sparks, brothers Ron & Russell Mael. I speak to Tosh Berman of Tam Tam Books, who wrote a book about a history-making Sparks 21-album concert series in London and who published a book of Sparks song lyrics. I also chat with Eric Theise, an artist, musician and avid and articulate Sparks fan. Laurie Cohen, Director of the Mill Valley Philharmonic, shares her first impressions of Sparks music, and I mention something about each of Sparks' 25 albums from 1972 to the present, and play excerpts from some of my favorite tracks. The episode closes with "Part One" of my conversation with Ron and Russell Mael! Please forgive my froggy throat during portions of this episode --- allergies!

Excellent Podcast

Listening to podcats is one of my favorite leisure activities and I place Andy's Trasure Trove among the best. Andy Moore is a skilled interviewer who is able to draw interesting stories from his guests in a comfortable unobtrusive manner without repeated questioning and interruption. Andy's voice, the background sounds and music he uses are all very pleasant. A genuinely enjoyable and interesting experience.

Hugh The Chopper King

Reflections of the 60s past of an interesting character who is ambivalent about his short exposure to television fame. For those of us who experienced the 60s and its anti war episodes, he relates a story about the “Coffee House” movement and his part in it. Including a gun battle with a group of Minute Men, preparing the farm house for an invasion, taking refuge in flooded foxholes, and hiding his children in a cast iron bathtub. Entertaining time with a guy who can relate a story with humor and seriousness.

Mellifluous, never maleficent

Worn down by a world of audio incivility? The podcasts on Andy's Treasure Trove deliver kindness and curiosity in a rich, easy-listening voice. Andy is a collector of interesting people (aka his many talented and articulate friends) and he also has an artist's eye for overlooked objects. Enjoy his interviews and take time to scroll through his slides; they are full of surprises.
