From Hollywood Boulevard, it’s The WOW Report for Radio Andy on SiriusXM! That’s right WOWers, World of Wonder Co-Founder Fenton Bailey, Executive VP of Development Tom Campbell, and WOW Report Editor James St. James have collaborated with reality TV guru and friend of WOW, Andy Cohen, on a weekly Top Ten Countdown of the things from the past week that make us go…WOW!
It’s a pop-culture obsessed hour complete with colorful diatribes, opposing opinions, and a dissection-like discussion that will make your drive home from work more fabulous!
This week, let us be your tour guides to some of our favorite places in the city of Angles, Los Angeles!
We air TODAY at 4PM EST on SiriusXM, and again at 4PM PST (7PM EST). You can also catch it on the SiriusXM app!
Let’s get started…
10) Runyon Canyon
9) Los Angeles Death Tours
Of course it’s fun to buy a star map to see where your favorite celebs live, but a lot of the times your favorite star probably doesn’t even still live in the house you’re gawking at from your car or Hollywood tour van. Why not check out where your favorite celebrities died? That location can never change! Book a Hollywood death tour at dearlydepartedtours.com.
8) The Grove
The Grove is the famous outdoor mall that is the brainchild of Rick J Caruso. It was built to be the Main Street for our dear city that doesn’t have one, and it’s become a quintessential tourist destination featuring restaurants, shopping, and a spectacular water fountain that 18 MILLION people visit annually.
7) Venice, CA
Venice Beach used to be a haven for crime, but it’s had a resurgence in the past few years. Check out the Venice Canals (where Julia Roberts and Matt Groening own homes), Muscle Beach, and hipster hangout Abbot Kinney.
6) Chateau Marmont
If celebrity sightings are your thing, you MUST go at least have a drink at the world-famous Chateau Marmot. You can’t swing a cat without hitting a celebrity in this Los Angeles institution at 8221 Sunset Blvd in West Hollywood on the Sunset Strip.
5) Crossroads of the World
4) Pacific Coast Highway & El Matador State Beach
The Pacific Coast Highway, or the PCH, is one of the most gorgeous drives with some of the most gorgeous beaches you’ve ever seen. One of our favorite beaches on California’s Highway 1 is the magnificent El Matador State Beach in Malibu at 32350 El Matador Beach Rd.
3) There’s a Gay Bar in LA for EVERYONE! Even If You’re Straight!
We’ve all heard of The Abbey. It’s one of the world’s most famous gay bars located in West Hollywood where patrons both gay and straight get to rub elbows with the stars, but WeHo isn’t the only place in LA where the homos hang! Check out leather bars Eagle LA and Faultline in Silver Lake, or head to LA’s hottest new gayborhood – downtown Los Angeles – to Precinct, Redline, and Bar Mattachine.
2) The Magic Castle
Do you believe in magic? You will once you visit the Magic Castle at 7001 Franklin Ave. It’s “an exclusive, private club. Reservations are required, as are coat and tie. Inside, miracles are rampant.” Click here to find out how to “make your appearance.”
How could we curate a list of our favorite places in Los Angeles and not mention HOLLYWOOD?! This very show is recorded in the basement studio of WOW Headquarters – literally underneath the world-famous Walk of Fame on Hollywood Blvd! Hollywood is a magical place with the Chinese Theater, the Hollywood & Highland complex, and Hollywood’s oldest restaurant Musso & Frank. Hollywood is ground zero for anyone movie or celebrity obsessed.
Listen in at 4:00PM EST and again at 4:00 PST (7 PM EST) on SiriusXM! Or listen whenever you want on the SiriusXM App!
And be sure to give your ears the gift of THE WOW REPORT on Radio Andy SiriusXM EVERY Friday.
Do something this weekend that makes YOU go WOW!!!
