Sometimes I feel like journalists are like magicians. Because I can probably impress someone with the magic trick of condensing 40+ minutes of audio with seven voices and my narration to an at most 10-minute coherent radio story.
I loved working on this story. I got to indulge myself in Tom Hanks film trivia and the band is just a treat to interview. And I was pretty stoked when the entire seven-piece band showed up for my follow-up interview. One member mentioned that was probably the first time it’s happened.
