"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.[/quote]


Was it Mike Lunsford and the Whiskey River Band? They were the house band from about 1977-1981.

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.
Dont know if you still read these but my great grandma Ella Shivley owened the bar rite along side of Earl Garrs it was called Shivleys Resturant or bar she also owned "The circle end" where eddies seafood used to be on manslick fork in the road. Her daughter Evelyn Fox used to work there with her also. Just down the road was The Green mouse bar, Jutts, Quater Pole Lounge, and a little further was The Whirlaway all on 4th street walking distance. There was a drug store on 4th street I loved to go with my grandma called "Kliens Drugs" I sit at the counter and get real cherry cokes. Husband and wife owened it. My mom worked at the Ranch House which is Jim&Joes now, kinda. Thats going back to the 60's I believe.

Closed restaurants along Dixie highway near Bishop DAVID high school. I can’t remember the name of a hangout that we would drive through seemed like the circle traveled was Jerry’s at Upper Hunters, Burger Chef, McDonald’s and ?? Was in this area and seemed like it was a fast food burger place. I believe it was a white building Topps possibly?
Anyone recall what I can’t remember or maybe just lost my mind

New Orleans House on Shelbyville Road. "Remember this is a feast and should take two hours to enjoy fully" as written on the menu. A seafood buffet that was a hallmark of all buffets.
