Episode 12: Knott's Berry Farm, Local Identity, and Two Walters
In this historic episode, Alice and Buddy examine the story of Knott's Berry Farm--its origins as an actual Berry Farm, its early role in preserving local buildings and histories, and its ongoing (and unearned) reputation as a second-fiddle competitor to Disneyland. How does our "backyard theme park" approach its audience?
Featuring an interview with "Iron-Horse Steve," a docent at the Knott's Berry Farm museum, on the origins of the Boysenberry!
Those Happy Places is produced by Alice White and edited by Buddy Duquesne. Our theme music is "Golden Gate" by The California Feetwarmers, featuring Phil Alvin. Additional music comes from Podington Bear, available through the Free Music Archive.
