What people are saying about the show

I fully expect Our American Stories to be the breakout program of the year. It is the classiest, meticulously produced, dependable piece of quality content to come down the pike in years.

Michael Harrison

The quality of stories, interviews, diversity of topics, and production is unparalleled. It recalls excellence of great "storytelling" in the tradition of Paul Harvey's "The Rest of the Story.”

At WTMJ, we want personalities and shows that display ‘insatiable curiosity;’ I can’t think of a better program that exemplifies that description than Our American Stories!’There’s nothing else quite like it on the radio!

“I’m amazed they’re able to put so much good content out in a week. From a commencement speech, to an interview with multiple people to a fully-produced historical piece, it is really good stuff.

Lee Habeeb is a man who can tell compelling stories to the great American middle, and he understands the power of story more than almost anyone I know. And the power of radio.

In the dedication of ‘Braveheart,’ I wrote, ‘It is the tales we tell ourselves that make us who we are.’ I believe this more than ever. A philosophy lives in the intellect. A narrative is alive in the spirit, memory and imagination. It grows. Lee has a keen sense for a great story, and what makes a story great

“We Were Soldiers,” and “Secretariat.”
