Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Charo, look out. The guest star of honor getting all the attention today is LA Philharmonic Music Director Gustavo Dudamel who will be making an appearance in the upcoming 42nd season of Sesame Street.

We should have seen this coming. Elmo totally spilled his guts in this 2008 interview:

LAist: So far, what do you think of LA?
Elmo: Elmo has been here a lot of times before. Elmo loves it here. Especially for the weather.
Abby: It's very nice. I like the Hollywood Bowl.
Elmo: It's not really a bowl.
Abby: I asked how much cereal could fit in the Hollywood Bowl and no one could give me answer.
Elmo: They thought you were kooky.
Abby: I know. I hear that there are concerts there and I love music.

Sesame Street (Season 42!) begins on September 26 on PBS KIDS. The exact broadcast date for Dudamel's appearance will be announced soon.
