The Idea Behind the Show Is Right Here: 

San Antonio is a city of stories.

Texas Public Radio launched Worth Repeating to find and share these stories. In 2018, San Antonio will celebrate its 300th anniversary and unlike its contemporaries Chicago, New Orleans, Boston, and New York, this city's stories are largely unknown. TPR wants to help change that by getting its residents to tell their stories and recognize how important they are even if they don't read like a movie script.

During our season once a month, 7 storytellers will have 7 minutes to tell a true story from their life around a common theme.

Think This American Life or The Moth, but sourced from your friends and neighbors. Public Radio tries daily to educate San Antonio about the world, now we want San Antonio to tell us about itself and its people.

In 1994, 13 year-old Nicholas Barclay disappeared from his home in San Antonio. A little over three years later, authorities thought they found him in Spain.  Private investigator Charlie Parker wasn’t so sure, but the more he questioned, the less people wanted to listen.
