NPR Classic Driveway Moments: Radio Stories That Won't Let You Go

NPR Classic Driveway Moments: Radio Stories That Won't Let You Go Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Presented together for the first time, here are the very first, and very best, definitive listener favorites that came to be known as Driveway Moments: the classic, spellbinding stories that keep getting better with repeated listening, selected from the National Public Radio archives. These tales were first heard on Morning Edition, All Things Considered, and other NPR programs. Like the unforgettable “Amys Answering Machine,” in which comedian and author Amy Borkowsky shares quirky, hilarious messages left by her mother. And “My So-Called Lungs,” an emotional audio diary by a young girl with cystic fibrosis. And “Hitching a Ride with Junior McGhee,” in which musician/storyteller Charlie Barnett takes listeners on a hitchhiking adventure across the U.S. Literate, intelligent, mirthful, and moving, these stories are worth repeating—and hearing again and again.

Synopsis:

The ultimate best-of collection for the long-time NPR junky, featuring classic pieces from the NPR archives.

About the Author

MICHELE NORRIS, an award-winning journalist with more than two decades of experience, co-hosts NPR's newsmagazine All Things Considered. Before coming to NPR, Norris was a correspondent for ABC News. Norris is a multiple Pulitzer-nominee and, in addition to other honors, shares an Emmy and a Peabody with ABC News colleagues for her contribution to their 9/11 coverage.
Internationally acclaimed, NPR produces and distributes programming that reaches a combined audience of 26.4 million listeners weekly, and, unlike other media, NPRs audience continues to grow. NPR member organizations operate 784 stations, and another 117 public radio stations also present NPR programs, for a total of more than 900 stations nationwide who broadcast NPR programming.
