FROM THIS EPISODE

Every story in this show is built out of a recording that one person has made for another person, usually somebody they're close to. A soldier from the first Gulf War records a typical day for his wife back home, and ends up documenting one of the worst massacres of the conflict, on audio tape. Plus, The Greatest Voicemail Message of All Time, and love letters, recorded on cassette.
