FROM THIS EPISODE
This show is three odd documentary stories built out of old tapes, found in thrift stores and attics. Act one: A "letter; on tape" found in aSalvation Army store from a Michigan family in the 60's to their son off in medical. Act two: Host Ira Glass with tapes from his father's early, abandoned career as a radio dj. Act three: Nora Moreno with tapes of her father, a pioneer in Spanish language broadcasting in Chicago, and the story of how her mother fell in love with him when she heard him on the radio, married him, and eventually tried to kill him.
