The San Franciscans: Bruce Bellingham
Bruce Bellingham is the quintessential man about town. A writer and broadcaster, his columns have appeared in the San Francisco Examiner, Marin Independent Journal, Marina Times, San Francisco Chronicle, and online at The New Jersey native's observations have been quoted frequently over the years in other local newspaper columns, including that of his friend, the late Herb Caen. Bellingham's radio career includes stints with KCBS and PBS. His book, "Bellingham by the Bay: Bits, Bites, Adventures in Radio and Real Life," is an entertaining collection of stories such as his account of the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake and memories from his years of training as an operatic tenor at the Music and Arts Institute of San Francisco. Naturally, no Renaissance Man of Bellingham's calibur would be complete without past experience as a short order cook!
