Features & Stories
We’re looking for new and exciting ways to share history on the radio… in fact, we’re sort of inventing it as we go along. The story is going to be a key part of that. We want to hear about the most amazing moments in American History – moments with a sense of character, action (something happening), and historical significance. This doesn’t have to be “Joe Smith led the charge that won the battle that meant the North would be victorious,” in terms of significance. Try thinking about the history you don’t learn in high school. Stuff that’s surprising. These can be anywhere from 3 minutes to as long as the story holds the listener’s attention. Pitch in the comments below, or email us at BackStory@virginia.edu.
