StoryCorps San Joaquin

UPDATE 3/11/20: Out of an abundance of caution due to the Coronavirus situation, the StoryCorps San Joaquin listening event previously scheduled for March 19, 2020 has been cancelled, and will be rescheduled to a new date later in the year. 

Valley Public Radio is proud to partner with the groundbreaking personal history project StoryCorps in welcoming the organization's annual tour to Fresno in 2020. The StoryCorps MobileBooth – an Airstream trailer converted into a mobile recording studio will be in Fresno from February 12, 2020 through March 20, 2020, located the Community Media Access Collaborative (CMAC) in downtown Fresno, recording the personal stories of residents from throughout the San Joaquin Valley. Sign-ups for recording opportunities with StoryCorps in Fresno are now available, but space is limited, so reserve your spot today.

Following the mobile tour stop in Fresno, Valley Public Radio will launch a new broadcast and podcast series based on the conversations recorded here in the valley - StoryCorps San Joaquin. Join us later in 2020 for the launch of this new series.

StoryCorps San Joaquin is sponsored by The Kharazi Foundation, Assemi Real Estate and Bitwise Industries:

In February and March, the StoryCorps mobile 2020 tour was in Fresno and Bakersfield documenting the stories of San Joaquin Valley residents. As part of Valley Public Radio’s collaboration with the personal history project, we’ll be producing segments over the next year based on some of these recorded conversations. Today you’ll hear from two religious leaders in Fresno: Rabbi Rick Winer of Temple Beth Israel and Reza Nekumanesh, executive director of the Islamic Cultural Center.
