Memory, Memorials & Tributes

Voice of the Heart: Remembering Karen Carpenter

February 4, 1983.  I can tell you what I was doing that morning at about 9:30 a.m. when I heard the news on the radio.  It was a different time – there was no internet, no cable television, and no cell phones with text updates.

Thirty years ago, when there was news, people stopped and listened because it wasn’t streamed constantly like it is today.  When the radio announcer broke into the music with an update, everyone around me in the department store stopped as I did and we listened as he announced that Karen Carpenter had died unexpectedly at the young age of 32.
