Roger Sale: Writing a City’s History

From Roger Sale’s Writing a History of Seattle, a 21-part series broadcast on KRAB radio in 1970 and rebroadcast in 1975.

Roger Sale reflects on what entranced him about Seattle and why he wanted to write about it. The geographic beauty of the city and the different views from all directions are stunning. Seattle is a very visually appealing city with so much to see. As a person views the city, they feel a special sense of something – something Sale wants to think about and discuss.
