In my fourteenth post for the April A-Z Challenge, I am going to share a Nostalgic interview I did with my Uncle Henry Cleage in 1994. I’ve done several posts about the Freedom Now Party before. At that time I didn’t know how to embed the actual audio interview. I figured it out yesterday and so, here it is!
I wish my interviewing skills had been better when I recorded this. Obvious things like, turn off the radio and go to a quiet room. I edited out as much of the extraneous noise as I could. Henry and I were sitting in the living room of my house in Idlewild, MI. You can hear the sounds of the kids getting dinner on the table and hollering at the dog in the background. In 1994 my youngest 4 were all at home and we were homeschooling. Henry lived about 4 miles away and often had dinner with us.

Well done with the recording. Returning the visit.
A – Z Challenge
Thank you Francene and thanks for visiting.
Great that you decided to post this, I like the nostalgia of it. Interview beings with I, tho 😉
Ah, but it’s a silent “I” 🙂 I was going to go with “freedom NOW party” but decided to go with the sound of “iNterview”. Originally I was going to do “Nurses” in the family, but couldn’t because I did them with “Doctors, Dentists and other Medical Personal”. I could have done “Nanny” but I did her in “Grandmother’s”
I decided to add “Nostalgic” to the title to make it start with N.
Congratulations Kristin! Saw your blog listed on the Family Tree Magazine Top 40 Blogs in 2013. Well deserved!
Thanks Kathy! I was so excited when I found out. It never crossed my mind. 🙂
I just wanted to say Congratulations for being listed in the top 40 Genealogy blogs….way to go!
I haven’t heard the interview yet but I think it’s cool that you have an interview with your uncle on “tape”, so to speak. I want to do this with my family!
I just wish I had done many, more and better planned interviews. But I’m so glad I did this one when I did.
Congratulations “top 40” Kristin! Keep up the spectacular work.
Love this iNterview, Kristin. I actually like the background noise–it captures the “kitchen table” feel of the conversation. Just read your last two posts, too, but will need to return again to listen to the songs and watch the videos. So rich, your blog!
It does do that. Takes me right back there to hear my daughter yelling at the dog.
I think you’re doing a fantastic job of a very tough nature. I’ve nominated you for an award 🙂
Thank you Udita. I’ve decided to be an award free blog. I appreciate receiving them but I don’t have time to pass them on so I decided it was unfair to accept.
This was very intereting, and it seems so many (especially Sepia folks) are doing this! I may have to join myself sometime, but life gets in the way of blogging already. Thank for your comment on liking a bit of information on the Mystery Hikes. I really was fascinated with it, and actually had more but though, maybe I shouldn’t get too carried away with it. But gee, sometimes Alan’s photos are so interesting you just want to know all about it.
I hope you can find something out about that kid with the poultry. Feel free to get carried away, as far as I’m concerned.
There are over a thousand participating this year! This is my first year. It gets me posting everyday.
