Back in 2004, I sat down with my Dad, Byron, and recorded his recollections on growing up. Dad talks about what he wore, the family’s first TV, the McCarthy hearings and calling on the telephone without dialing. I have edited a few stories together to make this clip.
Most memorable quote:
No…you’re not delivering it here. This is my house. I live here and there is no TV. I’ll help you put it back in the truck.
I need to do this again. In case you are curious, I used a M-Audio MicroTrack II Digital voice recorder as my equipment. Google product page: http://bit.ly/gmwDX7
What a welcome. To this day, I hear this track in my mind as I press the doorbell. This audio was taken using my MicroTrack recorder in 2004. My folks were just chilling…probably watching CSPAN BookTV just before I walk in. I think this is where my enthusiasm comes from. I love my parents.
