You Can’t Eat the Sunshine: Racing with The Rat Pack


Fanny Bixby Spencer

You Can’t Eat the Sunshine is a weekly podcast series produced by Kim Cooper and Richard Schave in which the Esotouric founders talk with L.A. personalities about the city’s myths, contradictions, and inspirations.

This week, Richard and Kim speak with Marcia Harris, a living history docent at Rancho Los Cerritos, about early 20th century social reformer Fanny Bixby Spencer, and also with American Transportation Systems co-owner Dennis Justice about his wild life as a band manager and his new food truck, Felony Franks.

In this exclusive clip, Justice recalls receiving a surprising—and unforgettable—phone call from Frank Sinatra.
