“Being married is like having a color television set...”

For our 10th anniversary, we’re revisiting some favorite stories.

When Danny Perasa, a horse-betting clerk, and his wife Annie, a nurse, recorded their love story in 2004, they instantly became part of the StoryCorps family.

Danny came back to StoryCorps again and again to interview the characters he knew, and to talk about his love for Annie. He even offered to record an interview documenting his cataract surgery.

Then, in 2006, Danny was diagnosed with a fast-spreading, terminal cancer. He wanted to record one last interview with Annie, so StoryCorps went to their home in Brooklyn.

Seven years after Danny's death, Annie returned to a StoryCorps booth for an update.

Listen to all three interviews below.
