Glendale police officer Ralph Murdy became a local celebrity in 1927 after taking Charlie Chaplin for a ride on his police motorcycle. Local newspaper photographers captured the duo on film and their photo appeared in the Los Angeles Examiner’s `"Who’s Who in News of the Day” on Nov. 5 of that year.
November is the month for jazz concerts. Chris Rios is the director of the Latin jazz ensemble and jazz combo that will take the stage on Nov. 21 in Glendale Community College’s auditorium at 7:30 p.m. The groups perform traditional jazz and Latin jazz repertoire. Admission is free.
