Dear Heavyweight Programming Executive,

Below, is a memo and video playlist for a radio and TV show with L.A. #legend/#icon, Zuma Dogg.

"Zuma Dogg" is a pop-culture/comedy character (like an "In Living Color"/"SNL" character); that became politically active, when City of L.A. banned amps on Venice Beach boardwalk. The rest is history.

The uniqueness of ZD is the mixture of comedy and politics, as one media personality. Both elements are represented on this page. Have fun! - ZD

(l) Garcetti - (r) Dogg
"Zuma Dogg is a crusader fighting for free-speech rights. He's been able to do it with both humor and substance." - Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti/Los Angeles Times

You are really a City treasure and font of wisdom Zumie! You are so special you should actually be a ride at Disneyland. Waiting with my pen to write down your next utterance for my Inspiration Board. [NO, she's no being sarcastic...I hope. - ZD]

#ZumaShow Memo For Programming Execs: See quotes, below, about "Zuma Dogg": Former radio DJ/Program Director/Consultant -- turned L.A. cable TV comedy icon with his "Zuma Dogg" pop-culture/comedy character; making a BIG debut on, "The Howard Stern Show," in 2000 (see videos, below) -- followed by a ten year run on cable TV, throughout Southern California. (Real life, "Wayne's World"=BIG NAME RECOGNITION in #LA.)

In 2006, Mr. Dogg became active in #LA City Hall politics, when City Council passed an ordinance banning amps on the Venice Beach boardwalk.

ZD attended several hundred council meetings; to discuss this free speech issue (and then extending into a myriad of citywide issues). The meetings were broadcast on City TV with twelve airings a week; with ZD speaking throughout. 

Zuma was also a frequent caller on KABC/KRLA/KTLK/KFI, with several hundred, high profile calls, as a City Hall insider. (A familiar face and voice in L.A. media market with top-of-mind awareness and huge street recognition.)

ULTIMATE DOGGUMENTARY INTERVIEW w Paul E. Amori!  Zuma Dogg eventually sued the City of Los Angeles, in Federal Court; and the judge ruled that L.A. City was guilty of breaking the law, in censorship of the public. 

City of Los Angeles had to change their shady rules, both on the Venice Beach boardwalk; and in City Council chambers, during public comment forums. It became a free speech issue that made local, national and international newspaper headlines. 

After years and years of speaking throughout the televised council meetings -- and all the calls into radio -- Zuma Dogg is a semi-household, brand name for watchdogg, political activism; as never seen. (See media quotes at bottom of this page.) 

The recent L.A. Mayor Election (March 07, 2017) gave ZD a chance to follow-up on his eleven year history, as L.A.'s top prophet/ranter/character/personality/municipal analyzer; to crank out a new wave a warnings, predictions and solutions as only, "*the one and only Zuma Dogg," can; and elevated Zuma Dogg's name and profile in L.A. -- as #ZumaDogg was a trending topic on twitter, last week (March 7, 2017), for the first time. [*="Los Angeles Times on ZD/February 2017

THIS VIDEO FROM 2006 WAS ZD's WARNING & PREDICTION (ON HOMELESS CRISIS, TO COME, AS NEVER SEEN; DUE TO CITY POLICY) THAT CAME TRUE. (I calmed down a little, since this stunning, prophetic rant. BUT, can still rise to this level...IF NEEDED!)

* "Zuma Dogg has been a community activist in Los Angeles for more than 10 years successfully taking on City Hall on numerous occasions."/City Watch LA

* "Zuma Dogg, who is smarter than and knows more about city government than most Council members, has become something of an urban folk hero, skewering City Hall foibles and failures in his frequent public comment appearances broadcast on Channel 35. His 2009 campaign for mayor attracted respectable numbers of votes." - Ron Kaye/

* "A very funny comedian. We gotta get Zuma Dogg on the show." - Howard Stern 

* "Venice performing legend and multimedia presence." - L.A. Councilmember (Venice district) Mike Bonin

* "More Brilliant than Andrew Brietbart. Zuma Dogg fought the oppressive, tightly controlled L.A. City Council meetings presided over by Council President Eric Garcetti, who had banned video cameras. After police tried to stop Zuma Dogg from taping the council deliberations, he railed against the big shots for months, slamming Garcetti as “Garshady” on his show and on his whistleblower blog. 'Whatever happened to free speech in this country?,' Zuma Dogg asked. He prevailed against Garcetti’s rules, and now brings his cameracorder to every council meeting, as can any member of the public thanks to him." - LA Weekly.

* "You're actually one of my favorite people to watch on TV." - Former L.A. Mayor Richard Riordan to Zuma Dogg on KABC radio.

Here's the first segment about side-effects of a device addicted society (which will be an ongoing topic) -- and Millennial UN-Ettiqute. 

ZUMA DOGG: Comin' straight off the #Venice boardwalk. L.A.'s real-life, "Wayne's World" ("legendary, cable TV superstar/icon"); turned free-speech/political advocate; and WINNER in FEDERAL court vs City of Los Angeles, when L.A. City violated ZD's (and everyone elses') civil rights at Venice Beach boardwalk; and then at the council meetings, during public comment, while addressing these issues. FREE SPEECH/CIVIL RIGHTS VICTORY=MAYORAL CANDIDATE, MR. DOGG: FEDERAL JUDGE RULES Los Angeles City Council Broke U.S. Law in Censorship of The Public.

The court GRANTS in favor of Plaintiff (Zuma Dogg) vs City of Los Angeles. Los Angeles City Council violated the law in censorship of the public." - Federal Judge Dean D.
