Life in Burbank during the 60s and 70s was an unparalleled experience. From biking Lucky Busters trail to enjoying movies at the Cornell Theater and shopping at The Akron, Burbankers' choices of entertainment seemed endless. While some of the local icons may have changed, the spirit has remained the same-and it's waiting to be rediscovered. In an illustrated talk, Authors Wes Clark and Mike McDaniel will guide you through their hometown remembering the fads, the hijinks, and the places that made Burbank the city it is today.

Wes Clark was born in Los Angeles but his family moved to Burbank when he was eight; he was educated mostly in Burbank schools. He met Mike McDaniel in 1972 and they graduated from Burbank High School in 1974. They have always been intensely interested in history. Clark lives in Springfield, Virginia with his wife of thirty-seven years. They have three children and six grandchildren. An electrical engineer, he works for the United States Patent and Trademark Office. His website is wesclark.com.

Mike McDaniel was born at the Burbank Community Hospital (now gone), and has lived in Burbank in the same house for sixty-two years. He was educated in Burbank schools. Mike has been married for thirty-eight years and he and his wife have five children. Mike has worked for the City of Burbank for thirty years and is the supervisor of the City Print Shop (printing being a vocation he learned in high school).
