Saturday, September 9th, for the 22nd time in a row, we played our Tribute to the Heroes and victims of that horrible day, 9/11/01.
Yearly, I am inundated with requests to post the audio. We recount the time before the first plane hit the tower, then all the events leading up to the fall of the Twin Towers.
We cap it off with a musical version of me teaching my nephew Connor, who was three years old, (now 25) the Pledge of Allegiance with the help of the incomparable Lee Greenwood.
I hope you enjoy this tribute. I vowed that as long as I was on the air, we would play this every year, on or near September 11, in hopes that people would never forget the darkest day in America’s history, the day we lost our innocence.
If you listen to the CarPro Show, you heard it this past Saturday, but if you want to hear it in advance, or share it with someone you know or love, here is the audio. Bear in mind, some of the timelines we talk about will be off a little, but the events of that day are accurate and chilling:
A faithful listener wrote this and sent it to me 19 years ago, the day after the worst day in American history, and I wanted to share it with everyone.
