Place + Memory on the Road: On to Ohio!

"This is a big freakin’ car!"

"This is a big freakin’ car!"

Project Producer Shea Shackelford in West Virginia, heading to Dayton, Ohio.

Dayton is the site of the third Place + Memory radio story—one on the National Cash Register Company.

Of the rental Chevy Malibu he’s driving, Shea has this to say: It’s fancy and new and I can plug the iphone into the stereo.  I hate to admit how much I like driving this car; it’s huge and powerful and smooth.

You can hear Shea live on the radio tonight (8-11pm EST)  on WYSO,  our partner for “Miami Valley Memories.”


Theme of the Week: Stadiums!

In order to get those creative juices flowing, we’re introducing themes of the week. This week is stadiums!

With summer fully upon us, think of those afternoons and evenings you spent in the bleachers, getting scorched by the summer sun, screaming yourself hoarse for your favorite team. Or on the field, running toward that goal or sliding to reach home plate. Schools are always vying for updated, state of the art facilities, leaving the stadiums we loved and hated to our memories.

Gather your memories and your photos and add your stadium to the Place + Memory website. The Stadium theme lasts from July 21- July 28. One of the stadium stories that gets our attention will be featured on our facebook fan page and here on our blog. So start submitting!
