Inside the StoryCorps mobile recording booth

StoryCorps, the national oral history project was in Rochester in July 2009, recording our stories as part of the City’s 175th anniversary celebration. While the mobile recording booth was in residence at Rundel Library over 200 people shared their memories and experiences. Five of their stories can be heard Thursdays in October at 6:35 a.m. and 8:35 a.m. during Morning Edition, and at 5:45 p.m. during All Things Considered on AM1370/FM-HD91.5-2.
 
Tom & Donna Proietti were the first interviewees when StoryCorp came to town, and you'll hear their interview on Thursday, October 1 at 6:35 a.m., 8:35 a.m. and again at 5:45 p.m. on AM 1370/FM-HD91.5-2. In 1971, Donna Proietti was diagnosed with breast cancer. During their StoryCorps interview she and her husband Tom talked about the experience together.
