Around 1970 I found KPFA Pacifica Radio. KPFA was America’s first listener sponsored radio station and offered a rather radical approach to news broadcasting. In that era life was about Vietnam and Civil Rights. At the time I was working in the San Francisco bay area, KPFA was about anti-war, smoking weed and nonconformist life in general. We all had Fox Fire books, subscribed to Mother Earth, stuff like that. For me, it was a great time to be working with Volvo in the Bay Area. I watched many anti-war marches down Berkeley Ave while working with our local dealer, McKevitt Volvo.
KPFA would spark National Public Radio which my children had to endure on road trips. It became a part of our Volvo driving experience. Today, like parents like children. Last weekend, we were driving rather early somewhere and, of course listening to NPR, and on comes a story about our very own Irv Gordon. In true Irv style, it was Irv at his best. Hearing Irv while driving was like having him along with us for our short ride. For a guy who has done about as many interviews as his Volvo has miles, he does a great job of always sounding like this is his first interview, and “gosh thanks for asking about my little Volvo P1800″ attitude. He is Volvo’s brand ambassador.
So take a moment and listen to a truly Irv Gordon interview.
