Stories of Loss and Recovery

Saturday, September 10, 2011

As part of The Requiem Project, we searched the WNYC Archives for voices that offer perspective on loss, grief and remembrance. The goal was for these voices to augment the music stream — text that would expand upon the themes in the music, and vice versa. We found accounts from volunteers who rushed to the World Trade Center site to help in the relief efforts, interviews with artists who struggled to capture the enormity of the event, and much more.

Stewart was on the program back in April, we asked him about 9/11 after the show. Here’s what he had to say.

Remembering New York After 9/11

Monday, September 05, 2011

It’s hard to believe that “September eleventh” was ten years ago. I moved to New York City eleven years ago basically to date, and that event still remains as vivid a memory to me as ever. This anniversary is stirring up plentiful emotions for me, and I imagine I’m hardly the only one for whom this is true.
