Last Show Recap

Melvin Dummar says a grand conspiracy has denied him his portion of billionaire Howard Hughes' vast estate. Many consider Dummar to be a fraud but an in-depth investigation by Gary Magnesen has apparently shown Dummar to be a good samaritan who saved Hughes from certain death. Both joined George Knapp to discuss why Hughes was in the desert, as well as those who schemed to deny Dummar and several institutions of their rightful share of the Hughes estate. In the first hour, veteran music journalist Joel Selvin talked about the notorious Rolling Stones Altamont concert of 1969, considered by many to be rock’s darkest day.

Special Guest

Biography:

Gary Magnesen served as a medic in an Air Force aero-medical evacuation unit, and entered on duty as an FBI agent in November of 1970. He was stationed in the Minneapolis, Milwaukee and Las Vegas field Divisions and retired in 1996 after 26 years of service. He was the Primary Organized Crime Squad Relief Supervisor and the Organized Crime Program Coordinator in Las Vegas and was responsible for the convictions of numerous mobsters, and was the recipient of many commendations and awards for his investigative efforts.

He has a degree in psychology and taught “Understanding the Criminal Mind” at the college level, and was a consultant for the National Museum for Organized Crime and Law Enforcement located in Las Vegas. He is the author of four books, and resides with his wife in the southwest United States. His curiosity piqued by an offhand comment by a relative, Magnesen launched a private investigation into the controversial meeting between Howard Hughes and Melvin Dummar, and the validity of the handwritten Howard Hughes Will which named Dummar as an heir.
