Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Couldn't help but notice there's a new, best-selling book about Patty Hearst and the SLA. So, on a week i'm under the weather ( but not Weather Underground) ..i thought to reoffer this episode: Most people know me (if they know me at all) as Dan Rather's writer on the CBS Evening News for 24 years. This is my untold story of being the News Director of KPFA fm in Berkeley who received the hostage tape of Patty Hearst and the ransom demands from her kidnappers, the Symbionese Liberation Army. What unfolded over the next weeks and months was one of the most bizarre kidnap/murder/journalism ethics sagas of modern times. This is my story...told through narration, music and soundbites  Paul Fischer/ writer/host
