Song and Memory
Is there a song that brings back a strong memory from your childhood? In this installment of our ongoing series, "Song and Memory," we meet James Palmer, a listener in Seattle, Wash. Palmer grew up in small town in Michigan. For much of his early life, his family consisted only of himself and his mother. One of Palmer's earliest memories is a popular lullaby his mother used to sing to him. Years later, after quite a bit of hardship, the memory of the song became even more significant, if also bittersweet.
