The Bryant Park Project looks back on some of its most memorable moments, including the news of the assassination of former Pakistani prime minister and opposition leader, Benazir Bhutto. The show went into four hours of live radio coverage.

One memorable moment was when we spoke to a member of Ms. Bhutto's media team, Farah Ispahani, who was at the hospital where Benzair Bhutto died.

On a lighter note, during the show's piloting stage, when Mike Huckabee was in our building to talk to another program, we poached on their territory, getting an interview with the Republican presidential candidate and even challenging him to a game of ping-pong.

And we also looked back at a radio story that began as a controversy on our blog: Gospel rapper Da Dooney Priest set off a firestorm of discussion with a public service announcement aimed at getting kids to pull up their pants. A lot of listeners and readers found it homophobic.
