we’ve had a good run this summer…..looked all over for that damn Admiral Radley.
tho we haven’t found him….yet…….. we sure have gotten a bunch of really good leads….

next up…a west coast stint with our pals BAND OF HORSES in SEPTEMBER check shows page for details

here’s a little re-cap of our search so far…

Merle Haggard Highway – Bakersfield, Ca. – old dusty road….empty beer cans…oil rigs….and a private airport. definitely one of adrad’s hangouts.

Diane Feinstein Skatepark – Orange Cove, Ca. – oysters on the grill….cops with keys to the skatepark….homemade guacamole with extra seasoning

The Underground Gardens – Fresno, Ca.
– the human mole….a mansion underground….Baldassare Forestieere…..definitely a drinking buddy of the admiral’s…..mostly red wine…from forestieere’s underground vineyard and winery.

Castle Air Museum – Atwater, Ca. – home to hundreds of retired aircraft….found one of ol’ adrads planes parked there….

Sassy’s – Portland, Or – uhhhhhhh…….no comment

Woody Creek Tavern – Woody Creek, Co – one of ol’ hunter s. thompson’s favorite drinking establishments….learned that several of thompson’s characters were based on the admiral himself. found a pic of hunter and adrad together at the bar. a good sign!

Surf Ballroom – Clear Lake, Ia
– site of last buddy holly concert….apparently adrad was in attendance….

Mount Royal – Montreal – one of adrad’s old sailing buddies….Jacques Cartier…he’s got a little chalet up on top of mt. royal. many a scotch had been drunk at that chalet…

Statue of Liberty – NYC – one of adrad’s ex-girlfriends….a bad break-up as legend has it.

Roanoke, VA – a mistake

Asheville, NC – thomas wolfe, f. scott fitzgerald…buckminster fuller built his first geodesic dome…with adrad’s guidance

Memphis, Tn – Graceland
– apparently the admiral spent a lot of time there with the king. recording….drinkin…playin racquetball. checked the guestbook. adrad has visited the mansion every other month since Elvis’ passing.

Oklahoma City, Ok
– Buckminster Fuller….one of his earliest geodesic domes. which is now a citibank….so the story goes “bucky” just couldn’t get the dome thing quite right….so he enlisted the help of one admiral radley…to help perfect the design….and…..VOILA!

Amarillo, Tx – The Cadillac Ranch
– built by the art collective “the ant farm”. which adrad was elected treasurer between the years of 1974 thru 1974. found a big pink clue…..

Gallup, NM – El Rancho Hotel/49er Lounge
– an old glorious, dusty hang on route 66…john wayne…errol flynn….clarke gable….and yep…. sir adrad, had all been known to frequent this little gem in the desert

Grand Canyon, Az
– another one of the admiral’s favorite retreats….back in 1953….adrad held down a job as a park ranger…..till they opened up the brewery over on the south ridge…..and…..some ravens ate our french fries…..weird?
