Help has arrived for locals who would like to be able to point out some of spots where more than 190 Hollywood films have been shot hereabouts-from the Frank Lloyd Wright home on Carmel Beach featured in A Summer''s Place to the Carmel Highlands cliff where Clint Eastwood''s erstwhile lover in Play Misty For Me plunged to her well-deserved death. A handy brochure compiled by the Monterey County Film Commission pinpoints the sites of dozens of Hollywood flicks. The map is available free at Monterey County visitors'' centers, the Monterey County convention and Visitors Bureau, or by sending a self-addressed, 60-cent stamped envelope to Movie Map, Monterey County CVB, PO Box 1770, Monterey, CA 93942.
WELCOME BACK JT AND ROBIN
JT Mason and Robin Roberts, hosts of the once-popular "Roadside Cafe" morning talk show on KAZU, will be back on the air beginning Feb. 3 on public radio KUSP (see article pg. 9). Mason will host the first show that Monday morning at 11am with guest singer/songwriter Keith Greeninger. Roberts takes the helm Tuesday, and says the first song she''ll play is Eliza Gilkyson''s "Welcome Back." Couldn''t have said it better.
WELCOME BACK SUNSET CENTER
They''ve been banging and hammering for months over at the Sunset Center in Carmel, and residents are getting tired of seeing the grand old dame''s guts so openly displayed in such ignominious fashion. But the long haul is almost over, and the powers-that-be in Carmel swear by all that''s holy that the Carmel Bach Festival will open July 19 in the newly-refurbished Sunset Center. The Festival''s 66th season kicks off that Saturday night with Bach''s Magnificat and the Brandenburg Concerto No. 4, followed by Bach''s St. John''s Passion on Sunday. Single and season tickets are available now by calling 624-2046, or by visiting www.bachfestival.org.
