Time Machine (Radio Interview)

The Time Machine was a teaching device dreamed up by John G. Stockmyer. It was built on the campus of Maple Woods Community College. Students who achieved an A on an exam were rewarded with a ticket to the Time Machine. The following is a radio interview conducted in 1976 by Bill Redlin (KANU-FM). The interviewees are John G. Stockmyer and Ron Brink (MWCC Instructor and Theater Director). The interview was broadcast on Voice of America. (Note: The sound quality is poor in places.)
