National Day Of Listening

StoryCorps has declared Friday, November 28, the National Day of Listening--a day to simply sit down and listen to a loved one tell his or her story. We’ve been sharing some of our own family interviews on the air. Today, we hear from one of our behind-the-scenes staff members here at KSMU, John McMellen.
Again, as part of StoryCorps’ National Day of Listening, we invite you to take a few moments today to record a conversation of your own with a loved one. And remember, everyone has a story to tell.

As part of StoryCorps' National Day of Listening, KSMU's chief engineer, Doug Waugh, asked his 95-year-old father, Dale Waugh, to tell him a story. And he took him back to 1917, when he was a young boy involved in a serious accident.

Jennifer's Grandmother




I’m Jennifer Moore, senior news producer here at KSMU. As part of StoryCorps’ "National Day of Listening," I decided to interview my grandmother, Gloria Eberhardt Mettler, who is now 88 years old, and living in Bakersfield, California.


Listening is a priceless gift. StoryCorps, NPR, and KSMU invite you to join us in recognizing this Friday, November 28, as the first National Day of Listening. Take a few moments this Friday to sit down with a loved one, and just listen to them tell their story.
Several of us here at KSMU are sharing our own personal interviews on the air and on our website. Today, we hear of an intimate conversation between KSMU’s Erika Brame and her mother.
