JONESBOROUGH, TN – May 22, 2020 – The StoryTown Radio Show honors Memorial Day with a special broadcast as the cast performs a radio-play version of Jules Corriere’s one-act play “Not All That I Carry” 8 p.m. May 27 on WETS 89.5 FM and streamed online at wets.org on their HD Channel One.
The play is based on stories from members of the Jonesborough Senior Center, especially centering around the subject of World War I, World War II, and the Great Depression.
