A retrospective member drive special on Tuesday's Access Utah

Celebrating 70 years. 1953-2023 UPR timeline through the years.

It’s the Member Drive on UPR and it’s 70 years of service, so we’ll present a very special edition of Access Utah today. We’ll hear part of my first live interview, from 1995. Then excerpts from some of my favorite interviews over the years with: the great operatic soprano Joan Sutherland, Holocaust survivor Eva Kor, and This American Life host Ira Glass.. USU Associate Professor of English Lynn McNeill joins us for the hour.
