In May of 2009 I interviewed my parents, Wendell and Muriel Smith, when I visited them in Florida. They were getting on and I wanted to capture their story, their life, and my family's history from their memories and points of view. I transcribed the audio of these interviews for this blog. See Part 1 and Part 2.
Recently I've been digitizing my old micro audio cassettes. Amazingly, I have a microcassette recorder from Radio Shack that still works. You can't buy these anymore. Or, you can, but they are expensive and used. If there are new ones around, I haven't found them.
Here is the original, unexpurgated audio of the interview. The following links open the audio files posted to Soundcloud: Audio Part 1 and Audio Part 2.
