For John G. Watson, his semi-autobiographical, one-person radio drama, "1965," is a painful but therapeutic attempt to come to grips with the traumas of his childhood and the turmoil that marked his life as a gay teen-ager during the beginnings of the hippie era. But for KPFK-FM (90.7), "1965" represents something more--a controversial program about a sexual issue that could get the station into more hot water with the Federal Communications Commission.

James D. Watkins, the retired Navy admiral who headed President Reagan's AIDS commission, has been elected to the board of Vestar, a San Dimas-based bio-pharmaceutical firm. Vestar, which is developing drug delivery systems for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and AIDS, sought Watkins partly because of his work on the President's Commission on the Human Immunodeficiency Virus epidemic, according to company executives.

Now that the 1990s are almost here, the '60s have finally reached Pepperdine University. In what is being called the first organized student protest in the Malibu college's history, a small group of students have set up a round-the-clock vigil at the campus. The focus of their protest: student apathy. "We're on the cutting edge of student apathy," said Scott Talcott, one of the protest leaders.

Pepperdine University is becoming a hotbed of U.S.-Soviet cooperation, something that the founder of Western Auto Supply Co. may not have expected when he established the Christian school in 1937. With the arrival last week of a card-carrying member of the Soviet Communist Party for four months of study at the seaside campus, the hills of Malibu are even more alive with the sound of perestroika.
