You may have seen the Times article a while ago about David Isay's excellent crackpot endeavor...putting an "oral history recording booth" in Grand Central. It's happening soon, and Isay's project is looking for a little pump-priming.
"Before our flagship StoryCorps booth opens next month in New York City's
Grand Central Terminal, we want to make sure that our newly hired
facilitators have ample opportunity to hone their skills. Please help be a
part of the birth of StoryCorps by bringing a loved one or friend to our
Chinatown studio for a StoryCorps session between October 7-17. Think of
it as getting a barber school haircut - without the obvious risk. You'll
receive a broadcast-quality CD of your interview and become part of the
StoryCorps archives. And it's all ABSOLUTELY FREE! Please pass this
invitation along to anyone who might be interested. Email Karen Callahan
at email@example.com to schedule a time or with questions."
