@Blackshoe & Fontucky, (SPIRES) I didn't know that, I thought I saw on Firestone (Downey????) maybe not...
but I have fond memories of the one in South Whittier/Santa Fe Springs on Carmenita Rd, it was old, food was so so, waitresses were sweet old ladies, that was my original place to soak up after dancing & drinking, whereas Denny's came next & then Rosewood (Norwak)...i mean Norwalk...lol

Was that anything like, "Yo quiero taco bell?"

Well do it then. Sounds like you have lots of neat nostalgic information.

I was just thinking about Tiny Naylors the other day. There used to be one in Van Nuys at Sherman Way and Sepulveda, as I recall. The other one I remember was in what is now Santa Clarita, though it was gone before the city incorporated, I believe. It was on Lyons Ave. at I-5. Though the restaurant was gone, the tall sign remained there for many more years, and has only come down (relatively) recently. I stopped at a gas station near there, and was thinking about how that sign managed to last so much longer than the restaurant.

XERB was at 690. It was one of the border stations from the '30s. Like Fontucky said, they set up there to beat the US limit on broadcast wattage. On a clear night XERB, with studios "In the beautiful Rosarita Hotel in Rosarita Beach," which I suppose now is a suberb of Tijuana, could be heard all the way to Canada. I went down there in '55 or '56, expecting a town, or something, but it was just a run down adobe hotel with one neon light all by itself on "beautiful Rosarita beach." There was a red tide, too. Before Wolfman Jack started there you could find the weirdest assortment of hour, half-hour and even 15 minute shows on that station. Garner Ted Armstrong, after he and his father William Armstrong split over the Worldwide Church of God, (who, incidentally, built Ambassador College in Pasadena, which included one of the southland's best auditoriums, had a show; "Polo" "recalled" horse races, as though they were live, every half hour from tracks all over; the Hunts had a show about "The Mistaken Enemies of Freedom", Wayne Rainey had a 15 minute show, as did the Phipps Family, and evangelists. Tons of evangelists. I loved listening to them, unbeliever that I was. In a music store where I was teaching guitar in the late 50s, not far from the Palamino Club, a guy wandered in who had been one of those evangelists. I told him how I loved listening to them, and what a great thing I thought it would be to do, and he went into a tirade about what lying thieving bastards they all were, and how he knew it because he had done it. Burned my innocent little ears, it did. XERA, across the river from Del Rio Texas was another one. Those stations were the making of country music; nobody in the states wanted to play it in the '20s and '30s because they thought nobody with any money to buy records would listen to it. So the border stations started playing it and mail ordering records, and it was bonanza time. By the time Wolfman came on, I had moved away.
