Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

You're in your car, listening to a story on your local NPR station. Suddenly, you find yourself at your destination—home, work, or parking lot of the grocery store. The story has captured you, and rather than turn the radio off, you stay in your car and listen to the end. You've had a Driveway Moment!

Memories of fathers often include bountiful advice, long talks, and perhaps a few unpleasant moments. We've mined the NPR archives for 21 stories that capture the essence of fatherhood. Some are comforting, others are bittersweet, and many more fall somewhere in between. This compilation is sure to keep you in your car listening to the end—a Driveway Moment.

My daughter gave me this CD for Fathers Day and I was so impressed with it that I bought one for my son and son-in-law for Christmas.

I bought this for my fiance for Christmas and we both love it. He likes listening to the stories because they remind him of his father and he can relate because he is a father as well. I like listening to the stories because they're all very sweet and each one is unique. I wasn't an NPR listener before, but I think I might start listening after purchasing this CD set. The only problem is that we went through the stories so fast and were done with the 2 discs after only a few days! They will be nice to keep in the car for long rides and the set is a great memento for dads. I highly recommend!

Some of the stories are definitely interesting and fun to listen to, but once you've heard them all there's little desire to listen to them again, unlike music.

Limited use since it's not something you'd want to pull out over & over again but a sweet & interesting Father's day gift.

My dad said some of these stories made him laugh out loud, so the stories live up to their claims!

I purchased this for my husband to listen to on the way to work and he liked it very much. If you're a fan of NPR and like this type of thing, it's a no brainer.

I gave this to my dad on fathers day. He commutes weakly for about 2 hours and had fun with it.

This is a must-have CD. I cried, I laughed, I deeply thought about each one of the cases I listened to.
