"StoryCorps visited Laramie in 2008 and was very well received," says Morning Music Host and Program Director Grady Kirkpatrick. "We're thrilled to have them back in Wyoming recording in Cheyenne this summer. It's a great opportunity to document family history, a special moment in time or simply to tell a good story. There are plenty of them in Wyoming."
Wyoming Public Radio is hosting an opening day press event on Friday, July 12 to introduce StoryCorps to the community, and invite press to interview StoryCorps staff and participants.
Opening Day is at the Laramie County Library. Wyoming Public Media will broadcast Morning Music live from 9am to Noon with many special guests including CJ Box, New York Times bestselling Wyoming author, and Beatgrass, an acoustic bluegrass band (with a good beat) from Cheyenne. Swing on by to say hello if you’re in the neighborhood.
