Audiences will hear stories and recollections from people close to the key moments in humanity's mission to the Moon.

This hour-long special features diverse voices – all of whom recollect the Moon landing with fondness and pride: Viktor Yazdovsky, whose father helped prepare dogs for space orbit in the USSR; Joe Guion, who pulled the first space-traveling monkeys out of their capsule; Colonel Frank Borman, commander of NASA's Apollo 8 mission; Fred Hayes of the stricken Apollo 13 mission; and Harrison Schmitt, one of the last astronauts walk on the lunar surface.

July 20, 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing and AM 1370 is proud to bring listeners a week of special programming to commemorate the anniversary, running Sunday, July 14 through Sunday, July 21.
