I finally found a copy of the first radio interview I ever did. It was for the Satellite Sisters on NPR back in late 2001 I think, just after 9/11. I was being interviewed for my outlook on being a military spouse. (listen here: Angela Yuriko (Cato) Smith – Satellite Sisters)
At the time I was a contract writer for militarylife.com and loving it, and the radio interview was an interesting part of that role. When I listened to it today it made me nostalgic to think of how much my life has changed since then. I think I can hear a little bit of New Jersey in my voice even, now long replaced by the slower, Southern influenced inflections.
Here’s a little bit of my personal history I can now share with you, thanks to the computer prowess of my daughter Kyra (she converted it for me). I’ve changed a lot since then… but I still think I sound silly in recordings.
