Hi Dave, I'm a longtime listener of your show (you actually played a record of mine many years ago). I was just poking around on Mr. Beller's Neighborhood and found your post about nicknames in Bensonhurst. I'm a producer for a radio project, StoryCorps, and I'm looking for NYC's biggest characters -- or stories about them. Would you be interested in recording something about growing up? Can you think of any larger-than-life characters who I should talk to? Thanks!
Can you email me? davem—at—wfmudotorg. Thanks for getting in touch.
