Episode notes

Beach Blanket Babylon closes on New Year's Eve, after 45 years in San Francisco. The first episode of our Babylon Gone series profiles Tim Santry, the show's longtime wigmaster. Santry grew up the son of farmers and, like many in Babylon, found a home in the quirky San Francisco musical review.

Co-produced by Peter Hartlaub, Lily Janiak and Annie Vainshtein.
