No, we don’t have a time machine. Although, if we did, we would use it to travel back in time to Oct. 3, 2003 and distract Montecore the misunderstood tiger with some beef jerky or something, but that is neither here nor there.

We appreciate Ira’s infinite patience with our giving it to The Man.

Even if you don’t listen to our particular interview, we’d encourage you to listen to other shows wherein Sternberg interviews Las Vegas luminaries, performers and plain old fascinating people. (Obviously, we stick out like a sore thumb.)

In case you’ve just been skimming, here’s the link to our interview again.

“Talk About Las Vegas” airs on Thursdays on KUNV 91.5, “a broadcast service of the University of Nevada.” The show is also streamed on

Thanks for letting us use your fancy-schmancy radio studio, UNLV.

About our interview, Ira David Sternberg said, “You are one of the most interesting people we’ve interviewed in my decades of professional broadcasting. Unless, of course, you’re just making up this quote to make yourself look good.”

We honestly have no idea what would make someone say that. Probably.
