“Motherly Love” (52:00 mp3):
For Mother’s Day:
In 1996 Radio Diaries producer Joe Richman gave “Melissa Rodriguez from New Haven: Teen Mom” a microphone and tape recorder. Melissa was 18 and pregnant. Joe asked her to make an audio journal of her life, for the series Teenage Diaries.
Myra Dean tells StoryCorps of the day her son was killed by a reckless driver.
Seattle producer Jake Warga‘s “Far Side” calendars make metaphor and memories of his mother’s life and death.
And HV wishes all moms, especially ours, a happy Mother’s Day.
