gilroy LIVING WITH SAM BOZZO Kay Spencer & Jim O’Briant Sixty Something In Gilroy… Jim O’Briant & Kay Spencer 104 GILROY • MORGAN HILL • SAN MARTIN I met Jim O’Briant and Kay Spencer at the regular Wednesday night dinner at the Gilroy Elks Lodge. I found out that Jim was the Director of the Pacific Brass Band, a 30-piece brass band. To my surprise, Kay said she had worked for the San Martin Winery back when they had tasting rooms in San Martin, San José and Monterey. The winery was among the first in California to have tasting rooms with their wineries. Back in the 1960s I’d worked there too, on weekends, for a whopping $1.94 an hour and a 50% discount on the wine. JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2017
