Paul Rivas interviews Mark Patton LIVE on growing up in Santa Barbara, being raised by a newspaper editor, choosing to stay at home and attend Santa Barbara City College before transfering to USC on a journalism scholarship, getting expert mentorship throughout his writing career, almost screwing up his first professional news assignment, witnessing watershed moments in UCSB Athletics history, the Vietnam draft and recruitment, his Washington DC politics internship, covering the Bucky Waterfield murder trial in Santa Maria and hanging out with Jane Russell, working for the Santa Barbara News-Press for 35 years and counting, why he didn't take a bigtime job offer in Sacramento, that time he came to the San Marcos High School career fair, and what the future holds for those who want to be writers. Music by The Double Zeros (Intro, Missing Hawaii, Take Flight).
