I know I have seen some of their other locations, but I can't remember where.

Speaking of Burbank, there used to be an old style diner called the "Chief Diner" on San Fernando Road at the corner of Hollywood Way. Does anyone else remember it?
Wow.... I do remember the "Chief Diner". I only remember going once, when I was quite small. I went with my dad for breakfast. That had to have been in the mid to late 50's.

I also have a vauge memory of The Treasury department store.... I think there was one near me in the 70's when I lived in Granada Hills. I loved shopping at the Akron, the one in Burbank, on Hollywood Way near Magnolia. I bought a really funky set of Peter Max sheets there in 1970...

A rare clip of a true California music legend who passed away too soon.

For those too young to know - the guitarist in the Burritos, Bernie Leadon, would later join together with members of Rick Nelson's band and form The Eagles.
Yes, Bernie Leadon did go on to be a part of the original Eagles. Randy Meinser was with Rick Nelson's Stone Canyon band. Don Henley and Glenn Frey were from Linda Ronstadt's band?

I remember the Copper Penny across from Warner Brothers. Do you remember The Smoke House? I think it's still there, although I haven't been since 1999. LOL... Loved their garlic bread!

I love this site! I treasure all of the memories I have of growing up in the valley. It's so wonderful to connect with "friends" with the same fond memories. LOL... My husband grew up outside of Boston.... I think it's hard to relate to my stories of growing up in LaLa Land.

The Akron! I remember that store. The one near me was at Rosemead and Colorado in Pasadena I believe. They had the weirdest imports and modern accessories; I imagine some are worth a lot as collectibles now.

Yes, those days were very different from what L.A. is like today.

I used to run around with a guy who loved buttermilk. We would always go to Eagle Rock and a particular dairy, I think it was Roger Jessup, that was the best buttermilk ever.
