What we do

Every person has a personal trove of stories. These stories are what make your life unique.

Whether told by yourself or by a loved one, the stories that are central to you will be enjoyed by others when you tell them at a Recollection Agency recording session. We’ll record the stories that matter most to you, edit them for clarity and present them to you in a format that is useful and share-able. We’ll record your tales or those of the people you love. The sky’s the limit.

Choose the shorter audio memoir option or the more extensive life-story option. Craft the right questions. Schedule a recording session with the Recollection Agency. We’ll bring the experience, dedication and needed recording equipment to the setting of your choice. Then, you or your subject starts talking. We record the stories, edit for length and share with you recordings of your own personal history.


Who’s behind the Recollection Agency?

Hi, I’m Trevor Harris. I started producing and hosting programs at Columbia, Missouri’s community radio station nearly 30 years ago. That led to a five-year role as a producer/announcer at the local NPR stations. I have always loved listening to a good story. As someone who is naturally curious about the world around me, I love sitting down with folks to hear what they are about.

What’s involved in preserving my stories?

First, think about who and what stories you want to record. You may settle on preserving stories of your older relatives or capturing those legendary stories that define a life. The focus and scope of the recordings is entirely your call. We welcome the chance to consult on this project phase.

Second, select from one of our two packages:

  1. Record an Audio Memoir: This production involves the preserving of a specific story or part of your life. Memoirs can include stories of marriages, businesses, organizations and just plain memories of a time that is disappearing ever-faster in the rear-view mirror. Includes planning, up to three hours of audio recording, editing your audio to your specifications, and final delivery on CD, jump drive or password-accessed cloud-storage site. Base charge: $350; or
  2. Preserve a Life Story: Choose this option and you get the same treatment as in the Audio Memoir, just more of it. A life story generally has numerous chapters, so our audio recording time here is up to eight hours. Base charge: $1,000.

Travel to recording site, audio transcription and video editing may incur extra charges.

Then, contact the Recollection Agency to discuss scheduling your recording.
