As your host Ricky Guns, I'm proud to announce my special guest: Jeffrey C. Gusfield on Thursday, October 10th at 7 PM PST, who will be speaking about his book "Deadly Valentines" which is about “Machine Gun” Jack McGurn who was Al Capone's chief assassin and the engineer of the 1929 St. Valentine's Day Massacre. He was a baby-faced Sicilian immigrant and professional killer of professional killers. Two weeks after the massacre, police found McGurn and his paramour, Louise Rolfe, holed up in Chicago's ritzy Stevens Hotel. They claimed they were in bed on the morning of the famous shootings, a titillating alibi that grabbed the public's attention and never let go. 

This is going to be one exciting show you don't want to mis!
