Photograph article dated July 22, 1963 partially reads, "Not long ago, there was a hit song which just about sums up a freeway driver's attitude at rush-hour time. In part it said: "There is someone I'm longing to see, I hope that he turns out to be someone to watch over me." The someone in question is actually two men, Herb Green and Capt. Max Schumacher, pilot-reporters for radio station KMPC's Airwatch. With Herb and Capt. Max in the air and on the air, motorists know they can always find out which freeways are jammed and should be avoided. Part of the pain of being stuck in freeway traffic is the frustration of not knowing the cause, but the Airwatch helicopters are always around to explain the cause and recommend alternate routes." Herb Green surveys the checkered pattern of Valley traffic from the KMPC helicopter.; See image #00122873 for additional photo in this series.
