If you have a little time to spare, enjoy this amazing piece of social history. It’s fascinating to hear people talking about their lives spent in the six square block area around Cortlandt Street in Lower Manattan. For over 40 years this area was home to the largest group of radio and electronics shops in the world. No longer there today, it was flattened in 1966 to make way for the ill fated new World Trade Center. ‘Radio Diaries has won every major award in broadcast journalism and produced some of the most memorable documentaries ever heard on public radio’ I have to agree with them.
