“Getting off the bus there was a puddle and you took your shirt off and laid it down. I was finished. Finished, you hear?”

Jay McKnight and Andrea McKnight

This love story started with a song. It was Brooklyn in the late 1950s. Jay McKnight and his friends spent summer evenings outside, singing a cappella. One night, Jay caught the ear of a girl named Andrea. Jay and Andrea McKnight came to StoryCorps in New York to share their childhood romance, growing up, and growing old together.

Listen to Jay and Andrea’s original StoryCorps interview, and catch up with them in a follow-up conversation they recorded using the StoryCorps App about their life together.
