For many of you, as pictures from the White House and Ground Zero celebrations began to appear, I'm sure thoughts of where you were, came flying back....for me, I even remember the small details, We were doing a refinance on the house...the dog had a vet appointment, the all clear that my sister was fine (she lived in NYC at the time) are things i'll never forget. I vividly remember seeing my daughter, two months old, lying in her crib...wondering about her future. But i REALLY remember coming to the studio that day. It's a feeling i still can't explain to this day...the paranoia about driving into a major city, under the Pru....eerie...How we were going to handle all of this on the radio.
I was in this very studio when i heard Alan Jackson perform "where were you" on TV and i knew, somehow ,we had to get the song on the radio the next day...One of the things i saved from that day was the "USA Today". It's a closeup of the explosion of one of the Towers on the front page. I took it out today. It has the feel and smell of a newspaper that starting to age. So when my daughter who was in the crib that day came home from school this afternoon (4th grade), I showed her that paper...I'm not sure the magnitude of the day was totally clear to her, but i think she got the idea. Oddly, the show i settled on last night was Ken Burns "The War" and they were interviewing people on the impact of Pearl Harbor. I understand it, but it doesn't have the impact that 9/11 does to me...because like many of you. It seems like yesterday, even approaching ten years later.
