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.

Miami Valley StoryCorps: Jim Johnson and Sophia Johnson

Sophia Johnson and Jim Johnson

On Miami Valley StoryCorps we bring you conversations between local people who went to the StoryCorps booth in Dayton last spring. Today, we hear Sophia Johnson interview her father Jim Johnson about his career in radio. Jim Johnson is the owner of WDAO, Dayton's first minority own and operated radio station.
