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.

The 1986 kitchen interview with storyteller and author Robert Munsch. It would be the first of three times I met the author.

This photo with Bob Munsch was taken in 1991 during a visit to CJEZ-FM in Toronto for an interview to promote a tv special.

*Geographic note: Munsch indicates in the interview that he travelled to Eskimo Point, an Inuit hamlet in Nunavut, on the western shore of Hudson Bay. It was renamed Arviat in June, 1989.
