Twenty years ago this week, Warren Olney first sat down in the cramped studios of KCRW to host a town forum that would become Which Way, LA?.

Riots and unrest embroiled the city, and residents were unsure of the future. It was a terrifying time for many, and the forums provided a sense of comfort as disparate communities began discussing their problems together.

KCRW’s Steve Chiotakis discusses those first days and the years that followed with Ruth Seymour, former general manager of KCRW, and the show’s creator, Sarah Spitz, founding producer of Which Way LA?, and  host, Warren Olney.
