Harvey SchechterOf his next broadcast, host Paul Rivas of “Real Gauchos” writes, “Join me for conversation with Harvey Schechter on growing up in Brooklyn during the Great Depression, almost dying of rheumatic fever, moving to Santa Barbara at age 18 in 1941, becoming a cowboy and real gaucho, riding a horse to school at Santa Barbara State College, graduating from Santa Barbara College of the University of California in 1947, quitting school during wartime to work on a rubber farm in Salinas, struggling as a 4-F during World War II, changing his grad school plans to chase a girl, his 41-year career with the Anti-Defamation League, going to Dodger camp at age 70, getting old but staying sharp, and the importance of giving back”

“Real Gauchos” airs on Thursdays from 8-9am during UCSB’s winter quarter.
