In the late nineties, David K. Jones and I did a drive time morning radio show on KXAM, broadcast live from Tara's Mineshaft Restaurant And Bar in Cave Creek.
The show opened with the sound of eggs frying on an industrial restaurant griddle and we had locals in five days a week.
I captured this scene of a stoved-up cowboy hitting on a beehive-wearing server at the pinball machine. It's exactly as I saw it (and I have the photo reference to prove it!) The irony is, I am now older than that old pinball horndog. But I can still relate to his methodology!
Look what I got framed.
