Michael Jackson

The seats are gone -- removed and sold. The large porcelain CINCINNATI GARDENS letters erected for the 1949 opening have been promised to the American Sign Museum in Camp Washington.

And sometime in the not too distant future the Cincinnati Gardens arena – home of Oscar Robertson's NBA Cincinnati Royals, and the minor league Swords, Cyclones, Mohawks and Mighty Ducks – will be a pile of rubble.

Michael Bush was a longtime friend, and fashion designer for, the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. He was in Cincinnati recently promoting his new photo-filled book, King of Style: Dressing Michael Jackson, and the Ohio native stopped by our studio for a talk with Robyn Carey-Allgeyer.
