coastal voices bring obx history to life
The history of the Outer Banks is filled with thrilling stories of life on the edge. Coastal Voices broadcasts, slated to begin Tuesday, June 17, will bring those stories to life through the people who lived those times.
Coastal Voices is a multi-media, oral history project about life on North Carolina’s Outer Banks. Hatteras, Ocracoke, and Down East locals are building a digital exhibit to share stories of their islands with audio clips and photos.
Outer Banks CommonGood shared this information on the first scheduled broadcast and on the new Radio Hatteras:
“The very first Coastal Voices broadcast will air on Radio Hatteras (99.9 and 101.5 FM) at 7 p.m., Tuesday, June 17, 2014. The broadcast will run one-half hour and will feature audio clips from interviews collected in the Coastal Voices oral history project. The first broadcast includes stories about the Ash Wednesday Storm and the Lyle Gun, Entertainment on the Island in the 1950s and 1960s, Surfing Behind the Cabins, Mama Carrie, The Fish Business, Holding the Haul, and Nicknames.
