The Sonic Memorial Project

New York writer Paul Auster hosts this re-mixed and remastered special, featuring stories that focus on little-known aspects of the life and history of the World Trade Center and surrounding neighborhood, such as:

* Radio Row: The Neighborhood Before The WTC, the district of electronic shops displaced by the building of the WTC
* The Building Stewardesses: Construction Guides at The WTC, and Other Little Known Tales of The Creation of The Towers, 1968-1971: stories of the politics and public opinion surrounding the Towers told by the man who masterminded the construction of the buildings and by the young college co-ed construction guides he hired to educate the public and put a friendly face on the project.
