We go to the Sunset Strip to see how activists are trying to save Lytton Savings from demolition, a beautiful Mid-Century Modern representation of the California Dream ... Baldwin Hills, Baldwin Ave, Baldwin Lake, Lucky Baldwin’s Pub … So who was Baldwin? A womanizing schemer who once owned much of the San Gabriel Valley and created Arcadia as a mini-Vegas ... We check in with the 77-year old woman we talked with last week, who finds herself homeless for the holidays for the first time in her life. And a reading of “The Night Before Christmas” with Rachel Bloom, Salman Rushdie, Alex Cohen, Larry Mantle, Adam Carolla, Kathleen Turner, and NPR's Sylvia Poggioli.
