A sonic fantasy mixed up for the 2008 Radio Ephemera competition at Third Coast Festival. The challenge: blend the themes of two books to tell a story. I chose the history of a violent 1930's San Francisco longshoremen strike juxtaposed with a prim 1950s sex education tome for teenagers.
But don't let that stop you from listening to this three-minute short doc that stands on its own. It played on Chicago Public Radio's "ReSound" show and podcast.
