Playback

Noah Adams Reminisces For Playback

For November's edition of Playback we turn once again to "First File", the series where we talk with NPR hosts, reporters and producers about what it was like to file their first piece. This month we feature public radio stalwart and NPR national correspondent, Noah Adams. Before coming to NPR in 1975, Noah worked for member station WBKY in Kentucky. His first piece came in the form of an interview with the McLain Family Band, which he sent off to All Things Considered hoping they would play it. ATC played the piece all right, and the rest, as they say, is history. So pop on those headphones and take a listen to Noah as he reveals juicy tidbits about himself, his first piece, and what it was like working for NPR in the 70s.
