Bill Lund recently sent me a couple of audio recordings of television interviews that were done for the 1974 Comic-Con, which was held July 31 – August 5 at the legendary El Cortez Hotel. The recordings were supplied to him by Jean Graham, who at the time was known as Jeannie Peacock. (Jean was a key person in 1970’s San Diego Star Trek fandom, which contributed a lot of help and enthusiasm to the Comic-Cons of those days.)

The first clip features Bill Lund, who was Comic-Con Chairman that year, being interviewed on the Telepulse television show, which aired on KFMB TV, Channel 8.
