Pam Ferderbar on Ron’s Amazing Stories

This interview was so much fun. Ron is a lively, lovely and thoughtful interviewer, who coaxed a bit more out of me than I intended. There’s a great section toward the end about my dad’s work with Ansel Adams, and about the master himself. Enjoy!

(There is a charming “old time radio” story at the beginning that runs to minute 6:15.)
