In his capacity as president of the
Industrial Association of the San Fernando Valley, Lincoln Ward, of the Pacific Telephone
Company, and Joseph Staller, of the Southern California Gas Company, conducted a series of
weekly interviews over radio station KCSN. The program was called "Our Business is Your
Business" and ran from 1976 to 1977. Ward and Staller interviewed outstanding business
leaders of the San Fernando Valley. The 25 half-hour programs were designed to inform the
public about local business activities. Listeners were invited to call in and ask questions
and participate in the discussion. Following a similar format, Mark Alyn of KCSN hosted 14
programs, from 1975 to 1976, entitled "This Afternoon" in which Alyn interviewed Ward and
Staller on their views about current business issues. Four additional audiocassettes
involving Ward are contained in the collection.
