Hosts and listeners select their favorite stories from the National Public Radio archives, celebrating life, love, hope-and baby ducks.
Every NPR listener has had at least one "driveway moment" and probably more. You're so captivated by a story on All Things Considered, Weekend Edition, Morning Edition, News & Notes, or another NPR program that you stay in the car to hear it through-even if you've arrived at your own driveway. This eclectic collection gathers all-time favorites, including some suggested by listeners themselves.
Like Scott Simon's tale of his 5-year-old daughter, newly in love with ballet. The story of a scruffy stray cat who wanders into a tough Michigan prison. The one about loan officer Joel Armstrong and the baby ducks he saved. The hilarious account of an in-flight "wardrobe malfunction"-something about an inflatable bra. A man who went to college with $10 and all the hope in the world. A blind date that turned into a lifetime of commitment.
These literate, intelligent, profoundly touching stories are worth hearing over and over again, and now you don't have to stay in your car.
