WORDS ON A WIRE: Randy Fertel

 

   Randy Fertel is the author of THE GORILLA MAN AND THE EMPRESS OF STEAK.  Randy's father ran for Mayor of New Orleans on the campaign promise of getting a gorilla for the zoo.  He received only 300 votes.  Randy's mother, Ruth, bought Chris Steak House and transformed it into the now-famous Ruth's Chris Steak House restaurant chain.  Randy joins us to talk about his family's fascinating history.  http://www.gorillamanofneworleans.com/
