about

Over 2 sessions in 1990 and 1994 my aunt Beth recorded some oral history interviews with my Grandpa Arne.

He discusses his childhood and adolescence in the upper midwest, his time in the air force during World War 2, his career as an insurance salesman, and his love for my Grandmother Dolores (Tuddy).

I got my hands on these recordings earlier this year and, with my dystopia-addled attention span, felt compelled to cut them down for listenability and layer in some music behind them.

Hope you enjoy!
