David Isay http://wknofm.org en StoryCorps’ Holiday Wish-List: Listen, Record http://wknofm.org/post/storycorps-holiday-wish-list-listen-record <p></p><p>When StoryCorps founder David Isay sat down with his great uncle to record the first interview of the project, his great uncle told him a story about a first date. Isay’s great uncle had just returned home from WWII. He arrived at the appointed meeting spot and waited for his date on a stoop. When the woman turned the corner and walked down the street she was dressed all in purple, “From her hat to her shoes,” Isay said.</p><p>His great uncle thought she looked stunning. He got scared. “He thought to himself, ‘What is this glamorous beauty going to see in me—a hick?’” Isay said.</p> Fri, 16 Nov 2012 12:39:00 +0000 Eleanor Boudreau 22983 at http://wknofm.org StoryCorps’ Holiday Wish-List: Listen, Record
