THERE WAS QUITE A STIR THE OTHER NIGHT IN NORTH BEACH!--You would have thunk the Beatles were reincarnated and positioned on Columbus Ave.
Syndicated radio provocateur --based in SF and heard locally on KSFO, the man with an extra bounce in his step, Michael Savage, emerged from Pinocchio's and got a standing O with what looked like every known member of San Francisco's old-school Italians. It was a scene out of Good Fellas combined with a little taste of The Godfather. The only person missing was Francis Ford Coppola and Hollywood movie cameras.
Savage is flying high these days with stellar ratings on his syndicated talk show; a well-connected three-hour radio zeitgeist that has been home to President Trump who has given Savage numerous interviews. In addition, Savage is close to finishing his latest book, (due out, soon) "Trumps War" about the 2016 Election. His last two books have been NY Times bestsellers.
It was surreal to witness the scene as Savage was stopped from his walk to the car and high-fived by none-other-himself and best friend of Davey Rosenberg --good old Fat Tony, who was in a good mood despite losing a chess game to Ark Murphy. Fat Tony and Savage sat down to talk about the "'old Italians" and North Beach circa 1976 when the Alioto family ruled and everyone drank Fernet and ate spaghetti and meatballs at Geno & Carlo.
Savage was along with his sidekick, Teddy, the smartest poodle on the planet and Savage's secret weapon. North Beach was abuzz with the cops and ordinary citizens and Maestro Savage conducting the orchestra.
