'Out & About with Roger Martin' highlights Michael Jackson tonight

Michael Jackson's favorite things will be unveiled in Santa Clarita on a segment of "Out & About with Roger Martin" on SCVTV, Santa Clarita Channel 20, tonight at 9 p.m. and Wednesday at 11 a.m.

On this claimed-to-be-exclusive partial documentary, the host of "Out & About with Roger Martin" strolls through an auction-turned-exhibit of the personal property of the King of Pop at a location in Beverly Hills, two months before his passing.

Martin says he was stunned during the opening day of the auction/exhibit to find that there was a sparse opening line at the event, but overwhelmed by the vastness of priceless paintings, furniture and memorabilia. If the event had been scheduled two months later after Jackson's death, there would have been standing room only with lines leading down Santa Monica Boulevard all the way from Beverly Hills to West Hollywood.

Even though Jackson was alive at the time, the exhibit had a "mystifying feel to it", Martin explains. "Imagine you personally placing all your prized possessions on the auction block, never to be seen again." "Rich or poor, anyone who does that has to have second thoughts, in spite of trying to leave the past behind or make up for financial loss."

The show reveals a seldom seen side of Jackson's personal taste. Items of a class fit for a king were present, with elegant style, along with many of the most expensive "toys" one could imagine, gloves and limos included. Martin interviews Darren Julien, the auctioneer who takes you through endless rooms of all of Michael's personal property that Julien spent nine months shipping down from Neverland to the Beverly Hills site.

If you think you've seen everything about Jackson since his death, you haven't.

This episode of "Out & About with Roger Martin" will be paired with the Santa Clarita nonprofit "New Leash on Life" event, "Nuts for Mutts", a Santa Clarita nonprofit organization celebrating the common dog.
