The Duke of Fremont Street was on the local public radio station this morning. In case you want to listen to it, audio will be available here later.

Thanks for this link! I met the Duke playing at the Golden Nugget a few years ago. Always was curious about his story. At that time he was carrying about $100,000 in his violin case. Maybe that's more normal in Vegas, but I couldn't help but think that was an invitation to be robbed. Definitely -EV. And sitting with that much money at a 1/2 game, where I didn't see him play a hand for hours . . . I just didn't get it. Maybe he was a professional player back in the day . . . but no longer, at least from what I saw. He is however a better dresser than I'll ever be, and I liked his idea of a casino.
