My father, Hank Allison, just sent me a CD with about two hours of radio coverage of the SLA/Patty Hearst shootout in L.A. in 1974. My father was a 31 year old reporter with L.A.s newsradio station, KFWB, and he was on the scene, pinned behind a car by gunfire and tear gas much of that day. He and several of his colleagues won major awards for their on-the-scene coverage. I remember that day well. I was seven years old and my mother was beside herself with worry listening to the coverage and knowing that my Dad was there. It's really fascinating for me to hear my Dad's work. He was a really good reporter.
