Never forget. Listen to the magnitude of our 9/ll loss, hour by tragic hour. 1010 WINS Archive.

This weekend marks the 21st anniversary of September 11, 2001—a miserable day that forever changed America.

Today, as part of the worldwide 9/11 remembrance, 1010 WINS releases 24 hours of wall-to-wall coverage from their audio archive of the attacks on NYC and America.

With no extra commentary, it’s simply their coverage of events as they happened on that day. And more than two decades later, the broadcast still makes my heart race and takes my breath away.

Listen and remember how you first learned about the “towers collapsing in a storm of dust and fear.” Here is the first hour of 9/11 reporting from 1010 WINS and newsman Lee Harris:

The complete 24 hours of coverage is available from the 1010 Wins archive. A comprehensive timeline of the September 11 attacks is on Wikipedia.

Never forget.

As a Sr. Writer at T. Rowe Price, I work with a group of the best copywriters around. We belong to the broader creative team within Enterprise Creative, a part of Corporate Marketing Services. _____________________________________________ A long and winding road: My path to T. Rowe Price was more twisted than Fidelity’s green line. With scholarship in hand, I left Kansas at 18 to study theatre in New York. When my soap opera paychecks stopped coming from CBS and started coming from the show’s sponsor, Proctor & Gamble, I discovered the power of advertising and switched careers. Over the years I’ve owned an ad agency in San Francisco; worked for Norman Lear on All in the Family, Good Times, Sanford and Son, and the rest of his hit shows; and as a member of Directors Guild of America, I directed Desi Arnaz in his last television appearance— we remained friends until his death. In 1988 I began freelancing full time didn’t look back. In January 2012 my rep at Boss Group called and said, “I know you don’t want to commute and writing for the financial industry isn’t high on your wish list, but I have a gig with T. Rowe Price in Owings Mills…” I was a contractor for eight months, drank the corporate Kool-Aid, became a TRP associate that August, and today I find myself smiling more often than not.
