You never know where the search for primary sources might lead. In this case, it led to a closet where I keep my collection of Barbie dolls from my childhood. These "antiques", as my stepdaughters called them, came in handy for a request from Weekend Edition. They were looking for Barbies of all kinds for their photo shoot in honor of her 50th anniversary in March.
Barb brought along her friend Midge, Ken, his bud Allen, and even the red T-Bird. Who knew my antiques would find a place in public radio?
