The people you meet on the streets

Ran into an interesting fellow while working Hollywood Blvd. the other evening. It was Steve Goshman, son of Albert Goshman. We had a nice chat about his pops. I was a bit gushy about his dad, he maintained that he was just another guy. Not in my eyes. As a kid I saw Goshman do his act at least a dozen times.

Steve continues manufacturing the best sponge balls ever made for magicians (I prefer the 2" super soft).

I asked if there was any chance of seeing the manufacturing process. He respectfully declined, seemingly embarrassed by the old school technology involved in the process. Or maybe it's just a secret.

Another interesting encounter from the streets.
