From the “7 Up” series of documentaries to a question from a loyal listener about biographies, from a LACMA exhibit of Robert Mapplethorpe’s photography to such historic buildings as Artemisia and the California Club Preservation, from the death of Daily Variety to the philosophy of George Orwell, preservation, documentation and human decency are foremost on the minds of Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness this week.
