Bolero Time 1970

On July 4, 1933, Graham gave a live interview with Amelia Earhart just prior to her Independence Day airplane flight from "View Park Airport" (LAX today) in Los Angeles
 
Vance Graham 1906-1984 had a pretty amazing career.  By 1931 he was working in Los Angeles radio.  During WWII, the bilingual Graham was recording programming for AFRS.
 
The Bolero Time broadcasts started in the 1950s at KMPC.  In the 1970s he decided to develop the Latino "Victor" character which he used  for Bolero Time and a similar program called Viva.
