kymn-logoTalk about timing: This morning this year’s Oscar nominees were announced, and this afternoon the Northfield History Collaborative added an interview with a 1989 Academy Award winner who attended St. Olaf College.

Among the items submitted to the Northfield History Collaborative by our partner, KYMN Radio, is this interview with “Rain Man” co-author Barry Morrow the morning after his win for best original screenplay.

KYMN host Wayne Eddy spoke with Morrow on March 30, 1989. In the audio clip, you’ll hear Eddy and Morrow talk about Morrow’s reaction to winning and experiences at the ceremony.

Watch in the future for us to add more material from KYMN Radio, particularly episodes of “The Wayne Eddy Affair.” Special thanks to the student workers and volunteers who devote time to providing the notes you’ll find under the “page description” about what each broadcast contains.
