Many will be collecting audio histories this holiday.

According to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting:

The second annual StoryCorps Great Thanksgiving Listen expands, via the convenience of a cell phone, diverse voices in the contemporary history of the United States. Last year, guided by teachers in all 50 states, more than 50,000 students downloaded the StoryCorps app, recorded interviews with an elder over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, and uploaded the recordings to be archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.

This may be an opportunity for your community radio station to encourage involvement, especially if you air StoryCorps.
