Last night, I had a wonderful experience and an amazing opportunity with nighttime's number 1 talk show host George Noory at Coast-to-Coast AM. It reaches over 600 stations. George gave me the first two hours. That's right, two hours of his four-hour show. The first hour he asked about subjects covered in 30 Illegal Years To The Strip, and the second hour, he opened his show up to callers. Every one of their questions was relevant about old Las Vegas and opened up great discussion. It gave me the opportunity to explain part of why I have so much respect for Benny Binion, who made the Horseshoe Club in downtown Las Vegas one of the greatest casino operations in the history of the world.  After the show, the Producer told me that during my interview the station's phone board lit up for questions.

I know people who have known George Noory for many years. They say he is truly a nice man and of course very effective. I am most grateful. He wants to know who killed Ben "Bugsy" Siegel because he knows I will reveal this in my next book in this historical series about the Nevada gambling industry. I promised him I will send him the first book, and I will reveal for the first time the killer, and the motive, on his show. George, thank you again!
