Radio Gift 1: A Train Whistle
ALEX COHEN, host:
Finally today, this season we are offering you, our listeners, a few radio gifts. These are things you've asked to hear on our program.
MADELEINE BRAND, host:
And they're free. Today, a gift to listener Kevin Cack(ph) of Oakland, California. He's a former Amtrak attendant. His wish - to hear the whistle of a train.
COHEN: So, Kevin Cack, here is your radio gift.
(Soundbite of birds chirping and train whistle)
BRAND: That train whistle was recorded near Cass, West Virginia by NPR's Bill Deputy. And thanks to our NPR colleague Noah Adams for getting it to us.
COHEN: We are still taking suggestions for radio gifts. Do you have an idea for a story? Is there someone you think would make a great interview or maybe there is just a special sound you'd like to hear? Go to our blog at npr.org/daydreaming, and let us know about it.
