Preserving Our Voices 2013

Hilda Howard

Welcome to Preserving our Voices. This program is inspired by Story Corp’s National Day of Listening project. The National Day of Listening was conceived as an encouragement to listen to and record a loved one telling his or her stories.

WKMS set out to listen to people with stories to tell in October, and we collected more than 30 recording sessions held at public libraries. In this program, we hear selected conversations from Madisonville, Paducah, Murray and Hopkinsville. The stories range from love, fear, and service.
