Miami Valley StoryCorps interviews are the result of WYSO’s collaboration with StoryCorps, the national oral history collection project that visited Dayton in the spring of 2010 and 2014. All the Miami Valley StoryCorps segments consist of interviews between two local residents.

On Miami Valley StoryCorps we bring you conversations between local people who went to the StoryCorps booth in Dayton last spring. Today we meet David Fleming who moved to Yellow Springs after Hurricane Katrina. In the StoryCorps booth, he talked with his nephew John Fleming and John’s wife Louise Smith about his childhood in New Orleans and how it influenced his artistic career.
