The Bayard Stockton Good Companions Radio Show Collection contains one hundred four (104) community affairs radio interviews aired on KMGQ-FM Goleta and conducted with a wide variety of well-known people on current events such as the arts, social issues, the environment, education, agriculture, politics, science, and history.
Bayard Stockton (1930-2006), the Good Companions program host, started his career as a Cold War spy for the CIA in post-WW II Europe. In the 1960s he worked as a foreign correspondent for Newsweek. He also authored three books. Stockton moved to Santa Barbara in 1980 where he became involved in the community. Over the years, he was known as a radio personality, a teacher, writer, lecturer, media hound, political watchdog, and staunch supporter of causes. The Good Companions program ended its three-year run in 1986 when radio station KMGQ-FM Goleta was sold.
