One day before its mention in my column, here’s a tip: Phoenix will be hosting one of his ultra-entertaining slide shows — title: “Charles Phoenix’s Retro Slide Show Tour of Southern California” — at 8 p.m. Saturday at Pomona’s NHRA Motorsports Museum.
Expect ’50s and ’60s slides celebrating car culture, space age suburbia, fast food stands, shopping centers, drive-ins, Hollywood landmarks, Knott’s Berry Farm, Marineland and Disneyland, among other places.
The museum is at 1101 W. McKinley Ave. Enter at Fairplex Gate 1. Cost is $25 at www.charlesphoenix.com or, presumably, at the door.
