Does anyone remember the name of the band that played at Sahara Club in the early to late 70's? Seems like Jim Smith & Combo or something to this affect.

That would have been Rascals. I used to work next door at Chevron. Iíve been there a few times myself.

Default 80 yr. old retired pharmacist from beechmont

There was a Gribbins dept store on the corner of 4th and central across from Wagners and a 5&10 next to it!
Lee Wagner and I went to UofK pharmacy school, graduating in 1960 and became good friends. I often tutored him as he was having difficulty in school, already having a family and struggling to make ends meet. His father Leo was an excellent gentleman who worked his entire professional life there at 4th and central. Next door, was scobees hardware. Janet and bobby(twins) were his children and I went to Male High with both. My wife of 50 years' grandfather worked for Scobees for many years.
There was also a famous bar between wagners and scobbes, for those who like to drink. It was owned by earl 'junior' garr, and quite a place known for 'activity'.
There was a bank across the street from Wagner's. The FBI and other federal agencies often rented the 2nd floor to 'observe' and document gamblers who frequented to Wagners' Pharmacy to buy their morning scratch sheet for Churchill downs. They even published a booklet for other agencies and most of the pictures were of known gamblers exiting Wagners' pharmacy.
Lee Wagner owned several tack shops across the country and supplied them with veterinary preparations which were documented in a well guarded notebook as their formulas were unique.
Dr. Alex Harthill famed vet. would often frequent the pharmacy as well. Now, that you know i'm well versed in south Louisville history, can anyone tell me what only a few know of those times? Did you ever hear of 'whiterock manner' out behind Iroquois park. If you do, then you are of my vintage.

favorite part of fountain ferry, aside from the roller coaster, and fun house, was the penny arcade.
