Story Corpshttp://www.storycorps.org/ states its purpose "Our mission is to honor and celebrate one another's lives through listening. Since 2003, over 45,000 everyday people have shared life stories with family and friends in our StoryBooths. Each conversation is recorded on a free CD to share, and is preserved at the Library of Congress. Millions listen to our broadcasts on public radio and the web. StoryCorps is one of the largest oral history projects of its kind."
Some of its stories from Texas are online in their blog "StoryCorps Facilitator Weblog," http://www.storycorps.org/blog/ . Listen to some Texas entries:
