Gene's Barber Shop is located at 610 Lighthouse Avenue in beautiful downtown Pacific Grove.
The block where Gene and Gordy do their snipping and reviewing hasn't changed much since the 1930s. There's been a barbershop on the block for generations. Here is a view of Lighthouse Avenue in the days when moviegoers at the Grove Theatre were just getting used to that new gimmick, sound:
The Grove Theatre is no
more, but there is still a barbershop on the block!
A press release was sent out with the ratings from the board, and a local news station, KSBW, did a story about the shop. The next thing you know, these guys are on the air. They've been at it over five years and have won a local broadcasting award for the station.
If you're in the Monterey / Santa Cruz area, check it out Live at Five on Monday nights. KSBW is the local NBC affiliate, and is on channel 8.
