StoryCorps coming up!

You may have already heard but KAXE has been chosen as a StoryCorps station....we couldn't be more thrilled!

What exactly IS StoryCorps?

Since 2003, almost 30,000 everyday people have shared life stories with family and friends in our StoryBooths. Each conversation is recorded on a free CD to share, and is preserved at the Library of Congress. Millions listen to our broadcasts on public radio and the web. StoryCorps is one of the largest oral history projects of its kind.

We hope you'll not only record a conversation with someone who matters to you, but volunteer to be a part of this great project. We need ideas on places we can bring the StoryCorps airstream across the listening area - people to help staff the booth - and folks interested in helping to get the word out, etc. Stay tuned for more information on October's StoryCorps project.

You can hear StoryCorps every Friday morning on NPR's Morning Edition between 5:15 and 5:30 and again at 7:10. You can also hear StoryCorps on upcoming episodes of Realgoodwords.

Yeah, for StoryCorp and KAXE!
A great way to share the Uniqueness of Grand Rapids and the area and build community. I hope I can be connected even though I am in WI.
