The Beachcomber

Note: This story only appears in the podcast version of the show.

This clip is from what Ira calls “the beachiest show” public radio ever made. It’s a segment from NPR’s 1970’s show, Ocean Hour. In it we hear from a man who lives on the beach, literally. He explains how it provides him everything he needs to survive. You can hear the original hour of radio, which included The Beachcomber, here. Courtesy of National Public Radio, Inc. (3 minutes)
