71 year old Dominic Martina says his is a quintessential American story; growing up in the cultural revolution of the 1960's, being drafted into the Vietnam War, coming out the closet as a gay Catholic Italian American, watching several of his friends die of AIDS in the 1980’s and 90’s, and after living much of his life in San Diego, returning to his boyhood home in Lexington.  In this part of his StoryCorps conversation Martina talks about what his life has been like since coming back to Kentucky.

Bitten by the radio bug as a teenager, Alan Lytle got his start start more than 30 years ago volunteering in Clermont County, Ohio for WOBO-FM. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Broadcasting from the University of Cincinnati and worked at a variety of radio stations in the Cincinnati market, then made the move to Lexington in the mid-1990s.
