Babylon Gone 2: "Let No Stranger Wait Outside Your Door"

Listen on

Episode notes

Beach Blanket Babylon closes on New Year's Eve, after 45 years in San Francisco. In the second episode of our Babylon Gone series, we find the longest-tenured employees at Babylon and hear their best stories, including "The show must go on" moments, celebrity guests (Sidney Poitier FTW) and the emotions in the building as the show comes to an end.

Co-produced by Peter Hartlaub, Lily Janiak and Annie Vainshtein.
