Renowned Grand Sheik and founder of the Laurel and Hardy Museum in Ulverston, England, Bill Cubin, talks with Nutty Nut News Network reporter, Steve Wichrowski, Jr.

 

This interview begins with a hilarious gaffe by Steve who is gently corrected by Bill. (It's an outtake which we purposely left in.)

 

Bill explains why he missed the previous Sons convention in 1988 and also tells about how he contacted Frank Hall, Charlie Hall's younger brother.

 

The then current mayor of Harlem, Georgia, James Lewis, talks briefly about his involvement in organizing a celebration earlier that year for Oliver Hardy's birthday.

 

Recorded at the Sons 7th International Convention held at Clearwater, Florida.
