NPR’s Morning Edition, 12/30/11
Scott Wall: I was single and feeling very lonely on New Year’s Eve. I was actually wandering the streets of Manhattan and I ended up in the Paris Café. There was this ravishingly beautiful woman wearing a beautiful dress, and I introduced myself. But I was very surprised when you asked me for my ID.
ISW: Because I had been told that Manhattan is so big and scary, and I wanted to make sure that your name matched up and your birth date, and all those details. [laughs]
SW: I thought it was very cute. And I said that I would like to see you in a day or two.
ISW: And then I called you and you took me to the airport.
SW: I had a little Walkman at the time, a beaten-up Walkman. I commuted great distances into Manhattan, so I had time to make these tapes, like recorded letters.
SW VOICE ON ARCHIVAL AUDIO: Scott here…
SW: And I would interview the brakemen on the subway.
