Tony's LA: Viva Tirado, Tropical Preserves, and The Serial Killer.

Host Tony Valdez meets the people and takes us to the places that make Los Angeles so unique. In this edition of his Fox 11 Special, "Tony's L.A." - he tells us about the bullfighter's song that became a hit - twice - for local musicians, plus the first family of jelly making, and a Serial Killer who terrorized LA decades ago.

Part 1: Viva Tirado: The story of an unlikely song that became a hit for both the local LA jazz master who wrote it (in honor of a Tijuana bullfighter), and a local group of Latino musicians who put their own spin on the record known as "Viva Tirado."

Part 2: Tropical Preserves: You've seen their jams and jellies on grocery store shelves. You've probably even tasted them. But did you know that The Tropical Preserving Company is one of LA's oldest and most successful family-owned businesses?

Part 3: Serial Killer: His name is Mack Ray Edwards. You've probably never heard of him, but you've had a closer brush than you think with one of LA's most dangerous - but least known - serial killers.

The police department asked its twitter followers to share pictures of themselves with New York City police officers using the hashtag "myNYPD." Some did share nice pictures, but others not so much.Some of the first pictures posted showed regular citizens standing with very friendly looking police officers.
