+ The 5 minute program was sponsored by "Pacific Power & Light Company" and was told by veteran Radio & TV actor Nelson Olmsted. "Stories of Pacific Powerland" were recorded in Portland at Robert Lindahl's "Northwestern, Inc., Motion Picture & Recording" studios at 411 S.W. 13th Ave. The program ran three days a week: Monday's, Wednesday's & Friday's. Recording began on September 19, 1961. Nelson Olmsted taped 26 programs in the very first recording sessions. He would return to Portland three times yearly from Los Angeles to record more. The stories dealt the past, present and future of the Northwest. Most of the scripts were written by free-lance writer John Forbis. Programs were introduced by KOIN's Clint Gruber who voiced the PP&L commercials. 80 stations in the Pacific Northwest carried the first programs.
