Kenneth moved to Los Angeles, working as a guide and also in public relations before becoming an assistant producer for a few years for Lux Radio Theatre.  "...Ken Hodge had worked in radio for many years, producing [[Lux Radio Theatre]]." (''My Story'', p 43)  The Voters Registration rolls show Ken in public relations in 1940 so he could not have started as an assitant producer at Lux before then.  By 1942 he is listed in the rolls as "assistant producer."

[[Rock Hudson]], at that time still going by his name Roy Fitzgerald, was discharged from the U.S. Navy in 1946 and decided to go to California because his father, was living in Long Beach.  He found a job driving for Budget Pack.  In Long Beach, for the first time, he met men who were open about being gay.  One of these was Kenneth G Hodge.  "...Ken was thirty-six and Roy was twenty-one...he lived in a penthouse...in the [[Chateau Marmont]], a building owned by his Aunt Bernadette." (''My Story'', p 43)  But Davidson was wrong as Kenneth was only 32 when they met.

Davidson states that Kenneth had left the entertainment business and moved to Long Beach to manage the Chateau Marmont which his aunt owned.  The Voter Registration shows Ken and Roy's address in 1948 and in 1950 as 921 E Broadway.  This does not appear to be the Chateau Marmont unless it's address has since changed.
