The Greatest Love Story

In keeping with my recent theme of linking to publicly available public radio recordings…

So it’s a little late for St. Valentine’s Day, but I’ve been busy. On This American Life, Sarah Vowell’s The Greatest Love Story of the 20th Century (about 47 minutes in) is fantastic and a must-hear for Johnny Cash fans. The story dispells a longstanding misconception I’ve had that “Ring of Fire” is actually about syphilis.

Incidentally, did you know that you can jump to the middle of a RealAudio stream simply by appending ?start=47:00 (to jump 47 minutes in) to the URL? Unrelatedly—that Vowell was the voice of superhero Violet Parr in The Incredibles?
