Surprising and amazing radio essays about big and small events in North American life. Included are:

* a children's funeral service for a pet turtle

* a cardboard disk recorded by Tennessee Williams in a New Orleans penny arcade

* stories and songs of Cuban cigarmakers (narrated by Andy Garcia)

* carnival talkers

* fishmongers' sales pitches

* the sounds of the Northern Lights

* the life work of an agoraphobic professor who recorded thousands of everyday sounds within one ZIP Code in New York City

Two cassettes, about two and a half hours total.

2.5 hours on two audiocassette tapes. Subtitled "Radio Stories from NPR's 'All Things Considered.'" Hosted by NPR's Noah Adams with Linda Wertheimer and Robert Seigel; produced by The Kitchen Sisters (Davia Nelson & Nikki Silva) and Jay Allison with NPR. I took this to the gym, and it actually made running fun.
