  • Hosts and listeners select their favorite stories celebrating life, love, hope - and baby ducks!

    Hosted by Morning Edition's Renee Montagne, this collection includes Scott Simon's tale of his 5-year-old daughter, newly in love with ballet; the story of a scruffy stray cat who wanders into a tough Michigan prison; and the hilarious account of an in-flight "wardrobe malfunction" - something about an inflatable bra. These literate, intelligent, profoundly touching stories are worth hearing over and over again--and now you don't have to stay in your car.

    What is a Driveway Moment? Maybe it’s happened to you as it has to countless others. . . . You’re driving home, listening to a story on NPR. Suddenly, you find yourself in your driveway (or parking space or parking garage). Rather than turn the radio off, you stay in your car to hear the piece to the end. It’s a Driveway Moment. The NPR Driveway Moments Series collects these “best of” stories so that you are never more than a “play” away from a Driveway Moment.
