Video: That time Huell Howser went to Coachella


During his time hosting California’s Gold, host Huell Howser went everywhere in California. Seriously, the man probably did two or three shows from your kitchen and bathroom. And while every single one of his shows was “amazing,” this episode from 2008’s Coachella Music and Arts Festival is equal parts awesome, funny, and surreal.

Huell interviews festies and fest founder Paul Tollett, cruises through camping, explores the art installations, learns about water bottle recycling, goes on stage for Dwight Yoakam’s performance, and learns about Coachella’s nightlife.

The who episode is on YouTube and divided into four segments:
