Episode 63: Steve Arklin Jr. & Rancho Deluxe

E.J. and Bill welcomed Steve Arklin to the program. Arklin describes the Rancho Deluxe film studio located in Santa Clarita, and how he managed to get T.V shows, movies, and even music videos to film there.

When not fighting evil-doers with derring-do and aplomb, E.J. writes Hollywood history books (which nobody reads), leads tours (which nobody goes on), and co-hosts “SCV in the Movies,” (which nobody watches). E.J. is also on the board of directors of the Friends of Hart Park (but he never attends the meetings).

He and Kimi, his wife, best friend, and co-conspirator, live in Newhall.
