Ties That Bind: A StoryCorps 10th Anniversary Special

Thursday October 17 at 7 pm

There are questions we would answer, if only we were asked. How did we grow up? What do we remember about home? What about our family? For 10 years StoryCorps has celebrated the stories of everyday people. In honor of this 10th anniversary, WVXU presents a special retrospective hosted by NPR's Scott Simon and StoryCorps founder Dave Isay that features Dave and Scott in an unscripted conversation about the importance of humanity, intimacy and the need to bear witness. They share stories about StoryCorps' beginnings and its growth into an archive of interviews with nearly 100,000 Americans from every state of the union.

Listen in on some unforgettable StoryCorps moments: Danny and Annie Perasa share their belief in the everlasting power of their love in the face of death, the amazing Ms. Divine leaves her mark, Monique Ferrer remembers her husband who died in the World Trade Center on 9/11, and Scott Simon shares one of the last recorded conversations he had with his mother Patricia in a StoryCorps recording booth.
