[Original Airdate: March 31, 2014] Every week, I REMEMBER hosts special guests who share their personal stories. Viewers get an intimate look at politicians, entrepreneurs, artists, educators and other guests as they recall the great experiences and special moments, both large and small, of their lives. The series has hosted Pulitzer prize-winning author Studs Terkel, Wisconsin Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson, five-time Grammy award-winning vocalist Al Jarreau, actor John McGivern, former Wisconsin Governor and US Senator Gaylord Nelson and many other fascinating individuals. From Cha Lee's harrowing story of escape from Laos to Johnny Logan's triumphant recollections of winning the 1957 World Series, I REMEMBER relives the social, historical and cultural events of the past with those who experienced them firsthand. The series is an expansion of the original I REMEMBER MILWAUKEE programs, drawing guests and topics from beyond Southeastern Wisconsin. I REMEMBER, replete with spontaneous comments as well as insight and hindsight, also plays a special role in today's community as it develops and preserves an important oral history with the stories it captures. The program is hosted by Jim Peck. Peck, an Emmy Award winning talk show host and former network game show emcee, adds his perspective and memories as a Milwaukee native and nationally known entertainer.
