“Love You Forever, it just came out of some personal experiences … I had some baggage about things that had happened to me that I had carried into that story.”Robert Munsch
And there was along a sing-along portion to the story that the publishers at the time weren’t crazy about.
He sang it for me and I recorded what I thought at the time was a scoop; in only my second interview ever!
Robert Munsch shared stories about his life, the storytelling process and his travels across Canada where he met a legion of young fans.
The interview was recorded on my portable JVC PC 11 stereo at the kitchen table of his home. His wife was preparing a meal and at least one of his children were in the living-room.
A portion of this interview appeared on a show that was on our college radio station, which at the time broadcast to the cafeteria and the student lounge.
Which portion aired, I can’t remember but I am certain it was not the entire interview.
