KPUG: Jessica Longston interview


…by Steven Smith

This is one of several interesting audio histories that were recorded with pioneer PNW broadcasters by Washington State University professor Hugh Rundell…back in the 1970s. Jessica Longston is talking about the difficulty of getting KPUG finally on the air back in 1948.
