On the morning of September 11th, 1971, actress Jane Fonda and members of her troupe, who had been scheduled to put on a show in Fairfield that weekend, held a press conference at the main gate of Travis Air Force Base to tell the public why their show had to be cancelled. Following their statements, Fonda and members of the press spoke with some of the fifty or so airmen who had gathered to get their reactions to the cancellation and to life in the Air Force in general. The recording begins with KPFA's Denny Smithson interviewing 2nd Lieutenant Ken Klucsor[sp?] of the Air Force Security Police. Aside from Fonda, other speakers on the recording include Nancy Hausch, co-organizer of the planned event; Wally Long, airman from Travis AFB; and Marge Kowalski, Fairfield resident.
