Ex-Alcatraz convicts on ‘Davisville’

By
From page A5 | February 22, 2012 |

Robert Luke, 84, one of the relatively few former convicts at Alcatraz still alive, discusses life on “the Rock,” and the Davis connection that brought him to town for a talk before the campus Entomology Club, on the latest edition of the radio show “Davisville.”

About 1,550 men were imprisoned at Alcatraz during its 29 years as a federal prison from 1934 to 1963. Luke was there from 1954 to 1959. He now lives north of San Francisco with his wife of 38 years, Ida Marie.

Since Alcatraz, he has worked as a waiter, helped manage a resort, installed draperies and worked as a marshal on a golf course, among other jobs. In 2011 he wrote and published an autobiography, “Entombed in Alcatraz.”

“Davisville,” hosted by Bill Buchanan, airs on KDRT 95.7 FM at 5:30 p.m. Mondays, 8:30 a.m. Wednesdays and 7:30 a.m. Saturdays. The interview with Luke will air through Saturday. It is also available in the KDRT program archives at www.kdrt.org/node/8655.
