Radio Tale #25: My Dad

Part 1: My Dad, a Story of a Life

Part 2: Finding Out - Me, My Dad and My DNA

This personal narrative explores my relationship with my dad and how my discovery - years after his passing – that he was not my biological father helped me to understand him better and the challenges that we had always faced. This narrative also outlines his life and the music of Don MacLean that acts as a sort of eulogy of his life, and an acknowledgement of our relationship.

Radio Tale #27: The Path

This personal narrative explores – in a nutshell – the journey of graduate school in which a path is laid, and how by following this path I come full circle. This circling occurs first, through reflections of childhood songs and then, the memory of my family’s 1976 road trip to the Canadian Prairies when The Carpenters sing of being young, listening to the radio and “waiting for my favorite songs….”
