Alfred, any idea who was doing the interview and what radio station it was made for? Cracking find!

John, I interviewed AW myself ... it wasn't for any radio station. In the early 70s AW used to attend some of CIB's
meetings. I don't remember if it was AW's idea or mine to do the interview. It's never been published before.

to hava a nation under control one should force people not to think too much - authorities think and want the people to obey . . . that's where the trouble starts - cry freedom - you never get it

Find all the background information fascinating


Absorbing to listen to. With so much of the audio (radio, tv, podcasts) available today being short, punchy, snappy ..... and superficial ..... an extended interview like this is a real pleasure to listen to.
