Actor Jérémie Rénier with Sophie Gayot

 

This picture with actor Jérémie Rénier was taken just before I was going to see the movie “Cloclo”, My Way, at the 2012 edition of COLCOA, the French Film Festival in Los Angeles. I was about to discover a superb performance by Rénier reincarnating French singer Claude François on the screen.

 

You can watch my exclusive video interview with Jérémie Rénier at GAYOT.com’s blog.

Both chef de cuisine Chris Crary and I did not do it on perhaps to be color coordinated for that picture taken after dinner at Whist at the Viceroy Santa Monica: in grey and white in front of the outdoor grey and white wall of china of the restaurant.

It’s too bad that my schedule is so busy that I am not able to attend Gail Eichenthal performing the C Major Prelude from Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier on a piano specially placed in the International Plaza on the USC campus. (Eichenthal is program director for KUSC, the only Southern California public radio station featuring classical music 24 hours a day, and executive producer of the weekly radio programs Arts Alive and LA Opera On Air.)

 

On April 12th at noon, she, along with 29 other professional and amateur pianists, will play the same classic simultaneously on 30 different pianos deployed all over the Los Angeles area from San Pedro to downtown L.A.

Many of us in the Los Angeles area are familiar with the voice of radio host Frank Mottek who is in charge of the business news at KNX 1070 News Radio, a CBS affiliate. Now you can see what he really looks like!
 

You can listen to him during his stock market updates, and from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday when he hosts the “KNX Business Hour.” I was a guest on his show last week talking about the Los Angeles winners named in the GAYOT.com 2012 Restaurant Issue.
