Interesting thoughts, Jamieson! Apparently Lloyd Hickey was also quite the music impresario of his time.
Plus there's an online article about his death at age 80, only a couple of years ago, reported in the Sacramento Bee, but I can only get the first paragraph.
LLOYD/SUNNY chips are attributed by John Kallman to an address in Roseville. Close but not exactly Auburn Boulevard in Sacramento proper.
Somewhere around here in my box of Unidentified Gaming Objects, I have a LONE OAK chip. Perhaps I can give it a more proper place in my album, with an address. If all those chips and locations are indeed Hickey's, he sure moved around a lot.
