Jan 31, 2019 — Today we’ll hear from John Shaeffer, owner and founder of Real Goods, now in Hopland. John is the epitome of the old-fashioned entrepreneur, with an eye for innovation. As a communard who worked on computers for the county during the mid-seventies, he was in the unique position of straddling the old and the new: embracing primitivism while using cutting-edge technology.

January 24, 2019 — Today we’ll hear from John Mayfield, Jr. whose entire family relocated from Oklahoma to the “Orr Springs country” right after WWII to help build and run Mendo Mill and Lumber Company.  John describes his adolescence at the one-room schoolhouse near Comptche and his redoubtable teacher, Ruth Mannix, who made sure he had a superlative education. John recalls Ukiah in the 50s and 60s, his emergence as a conservative business and political leader, and his perspective on the 1970s “in-migration” of “hippies” who felt that the rules didn’t apply to them.
