Before Hitting it BIG...

Returning for her second season, this year, as a featured player on the popular 'Saturday Night Live' television program, will be Melissa Villasenor. Before hitting it big with SNL, Melissa played the Gaylord for our resident comedian, Carl's monthly 'Comedy Pajama Party.' Pictured below is the program from when she appeared in June 2011.
Back in the 1920's, the Gaylord would broadcast live it's own radio program from our lobby on station KHJ, which usually featured the 'Gaylord Trio' with musical performances. Below, the 'Radio Digest' issue from January 17,1925, listing the 'Gaylord Trio' on the program (barely visible, top right corner) for Friday, January 23rd.
