Santa Barbara's historian

I've interviewed Neal Graffy a few times, most recently for an article about the 90th anniversary of the Santa Barbara Earthquake, so I used that opportunity to invite him on the show. An affable gent, as you will soon here, Graffy's knowledge is encyclopedic about our fair city, and we barely get going when our hour is up.

Graffy has several books available at his site, including Santa Barbara: Then and NowHistoric Santa Barbara, and Street Names of Santa Barbara, all of which are essential if you want to know why our city is the way it is!

His upcoming book is The Great Santa Barbara Earthquake: The Disaster That Built a City, out sometime later this year.

He has another site under his name, which may not be as recently updated, but has different info.
