The Original Teenage Diaries: Frankie's Diary

Produced by
Radio Diaries

Today in our series, the Original Teenage Diaries from 1996, we hear from Frankie Lewchuck in Alabama. He was always really close to his dad - until the day his dad almost went away for good. And that was around the time Frankie started recording his story on a tape recorder.

Joe Richman is executive producer of Radio Diaries and the series Teenage Diaries Revisited, which is airing on NPR’s All Things Considered this week. Today, Frankie's new story will air.
