(THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – Nov. 4, 2013) StoryCorps is working with KCLU to record interviews with local residents as part of its effort to preserve and share the stories of Americans from all backgrounds and beliefs.
Staff from StoryCorps, a national nonprofit organization, will record interviews in its MobileBooth, an Airstream trailer outfitted with a recording studio. It will be parked at KCLU in Thousand Oaks from Nov. 21 through Dec. 9 and in the plaza between the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and the Santa Barbara Public Library from Dec. 13 to 20.
Interviews are conducted between two people who know and care about each other. A StoryCorps facilitator guides participants through the process. At the end of each 40-minute recording session, participants receive a complimentary CD copy of their interview. With participant permission, a second copy is archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
KCLU will air some of the local interviews and create programs around the project. Segments of select interviews may also air nationally on National Public Radio’s “Morning Edition.”
Founded in 2003 by award-winning documentary producer and MacArthur Fellowship recipient Dave Isay, StoryCorps aims to create a growing portrait of Americans. The organization has amassed one of the largest collections of American voices, with interviews of nearly 80,000 people in all 50 states.
People can begin making reservations at 10 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 7, by visiting kclu.org.
KCLU provides NPR and local programming in Ventura County at 88.3 FM, in southern Santa Barbara County at 102.3 FM and 1340 AM, and in northern Santa Barbara County and southern San Luis Obispo County at 89.7 FM. The station, a community service of CLU, is located at 3500 Campus Drive.
