Today we're starting a week-long series in remembrance of 9/11, ten years later. Our co-producer, WNYC, asked listeners what music they would like to hear, as they think about the events of ten years ago. Something comforting, to celebrate being American and a New Yorker? Thousands of listeners weighed in. We're playing some of the songs our listeners picked, and hearing about the selections from WNYC's Chris Bannon and Kathleen Ehrlich. What songs would you suggest? Leave your thoughts in the comments section.

Generation 9/11: How This Generation is Different From All Others

Monday, September 05, 2011

We’re kicking off a new series today called "Generation 9/11." All week long, in honor of the tenth anniversary of 9/11, we’ll be talking with and about young people who were coming of age during the September 11 attacks.

We begin our series with Dr. Nassir Ghaemi. Dr. Ghaemi is Director of the Mood Disorders Program at Tufts Medical Center and author of a new book called "A First Rate Madness: Leadership and Mental Illness."

We’ll also be hearing sound from Jillian Suarez and Erin Reeg — young people who are reporters for "Radio Rookies" on our flagship station, WNYC. "Radio Rookies" has its own series on Generation 9/11, that will be airing through this Friday.
