Video and audio Transport & Disability
A rare recording made in 1984 of Wade Blank. RTD is Denver's public transport system. The term 'Paratransit' is used throughout this recording. In the UK this type of transport system is known as 'Dial a Ride' or 'Ring and Ride'.
Tragically, whilst on holiday, Wade Blank's son got caught in an undertow or undercurrent. Wade went into the water to rescue his son, and sadly they both drowned.
Cassette recording made by Elaine Kolb. Video production by Keith Armstrong. Currently the audio file can be downloaded for free <http://soundcloud.com/user8580052/wade-blank-on-access>
