KCRW brings Storycorps to Santa Monica
Everyone has a story to tell: tell yours at StoryCorps!
StoryCorps comes to Downtown Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade from Monday, January 9th through Sunday, February 5th. Select segments from StoryCorps air nationally on Friday mornings on KCRW, during National Public Radio’s Morning Edition.
The largest oral history project since the Great Depression, StoryCorps is recording the stories of everyday people who make up the kaleidoscopic American landscape. The goal is 250,000 interviews over ten years, to be archived at The American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
StoryCorps has been traveling across America and the MobileBooth -- a state of the art recording studio housed inside a silver Airstream trailer -- will be based on the Third Street Promenade at Wilshire Blvd. StoryCorps is also partnering with KCRW to create special programming from the stories recorded on The Promenade.
Now it's time for you to tell your own story! Sign up for an interview session, beginning Monday, Jan. 2 at 10 am at http://www.storycorps.net/ or by calling 1-800-850-4406. Spaces fill up quickly so make your reservations early and fast!
Interviews take place in pairs--with a loved one, a friend, a family member, an inspiration--and you’re guided through the process with a trained facilitator. You’ll leave with a CD of your 40-minute interview.
Don't miss this chance to let your story become part of the history of America. Call or sign up on January 2nd.
