  • Funny, comforting, and nostalgic—kind of like Dad—NPR Driveway Moments for Dads is over 100 minutes of NPR at its finest.

    The collection includes stories such as "Ode to a Father’s Snoring," "Behind the Counter at Dad’s Luncheonette," "A Better Father," "Dad's Cooking" and 18 others. You'll want it for your father and yourself, and for those you know who frequently finds themselves in their driveways, tuned to NPR, listening to the end of a story.

    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.
