La Bomba is a montage program which alternates between audio of children discussing disturbing political topics and news broadcasts of adults discussing similar subjects, August 26, 1965.

Henry Jacobs was an audio artist and inventor that lived in Marin County, CA.  He volunteered at KPFA and produced a variety of programs there.  In the mid-1960's, after he was visited by a couple of KRAB staff, he started to send tapes of his montages to KRAB.  "La Bomba" was one such tape.  It was played on KRAB more than once.
