Towerful Memories by Freeman F. Gosden, Jr. Illustration by Stuart Funk. Photography courtesy Palm Springs Historical Society. Gosden's father was one half of the famed "Amos and Andy" comedy team which broadcast its popular CBS Radio show from Palm Springs in the 1930s. Freeman Jr. had free reign at El Mirador Hotel and, like Eloise at New York's Plaza, got close to all of the staff and famous guests. (The notorious Mrs. Simpson from Baltimore, for instance, snuck him cookies at lunch.) A fun read.
