Music, Footnotes & Ephemera
The two piano pieces that bookend the piece are by Max Richter from his “24 Postcards in Full Color” record.
The one in the middle is “Maybelle” by Ida.
It popped up on shuffle the other day and stunned me. I hadn’t heard it in years.
It’s really lovely.
My friend, Tony Field produces a show called “Backstory with the History Guys.”
A version of this story airs on their mother’s day special. www.backstoryradio.org

I’ve read all your posts … and they’re great. Keep up the good work. I can’t wait to see what you come up with next.
I actually bought “The Hollow Earth” for my grandson who graduated from Case Western today with a major in physical science. I think he’ll love it.

Just wanted to let you know that I first heard this on “Backstory” and now rave about you to all my friends. When will you be on This American Life? They helped get the word out about “Radio Lab,” and I want EVERYONE to know about you.
Keep it up.

Have you thought to add some sort of social bookmarking link to your posts? It will be smoother for me to bookmark such a good site.

This was both beautiful and heartbreaking. It made me cry. Thank you.
