Description
Adrian Cronauer was a DJ on AFVN Armed Forces radio in Vietnam in 1965 and 1966. He was made famous by the movie "Good Morning, Vietnam," starring Robin Williams. Here he talks about how the movie came about, how it portrays US servicemen in the Vietnam War, and opines about journalism in general during the war. He defends AFVN from a perception of rampant censorship portrayed in the movie.
