[Description by Don Kent]

I was able to borrow personal tapes from Bill Ballance (1919-2004) when he was doing The Feminine Forum at KGBS. I don't know how Ballance came by this tape. It's not the best quality I've ever heard, but it's not that bad, and it IS nearly a full hour.

Charlie Arlington (d. 1989) is included with the famous first-person news delivery. This aircheck shows why Ballance was called the "Quip Jockey".
