Lived there in early sixties
- Don't remember a lot but my dad was stationed at Moron and we lived in housing in Santa Clara from '62-'65. I remember gypsies coming through the neighborhood with carts selling toys and having a box on the stoop for Fanta and some kind of beer deliveries. I went started school at the AF school in Santa Clara. Would love to find our old house if still standing. I remember part of the address was M20-D but can't remember the street.

My Dad was stationed there-We went also
- I have great memories of 'Seviya' my Dad would take me with him to the 'Base' sometimes. I remember going out for late evening meals on the sidewalk cafes &all the music, clapping, dancing & guitars.
I've loved guitar music ever since, I've played guitar 35yrs, just bought a flamenco guitar made in Madrid, trying to play that music, I should've started younger! And the Parks! Awesome! Beautiful, looked and smelled great!
We, Dad, Mom & Son were there from 1957-61 then back to Lowry AFB Colo. So I could perfect my English & go to school in US(I learned to speak Spanish better than Eng.)

- I was stationed at Moron twice. It was a great assignment. Feria, the beach, Semana Santa, it was all a great time. Ken, the AFRS station is unmanned using outside program feeds.

- Iwas assigned to the 3973 Civil Engineering Squadron at Moron from fall of 1960 to fall of 1963. I was in Water & Sanitation and my AFSC was Engineering Entomologist. Regarding radio - we listened to AFRS and our favorite DJ was "Stick-buddy John". I had two years to go when the orders came down and I extended a year to get it. I don't regret a minute of it. And the Ferias of Seville in April, aah the Ferias!! I would like to take a trip to Seville, but life has proved to me that "you can never go back". I know I'd be disappointed, so I'll be happy with the memory of my good buddies, the base and ahh, the Ferias.
- I was an announcer at the AFRS Moron radio station when it first went on the air. Is the station still operating?
