“Here’s a Job for You, Marcel,” Part 3 — 4 Comments

  1. Thank you, Childs Play, for your comment. I'm delighted to hear from Mr. Delgado's family (he mentioned that he had a daughter in Sacramento, but I learned no more than that). Your grandfather was a fine and gracious gentleman, and it was a pleasure and a privilege to spend some time with him.

    I would of course be most pleased to give you a copy of my interview with him — for that matter, as many copies as you'd like. Feel free to e-mail me at I will also try to get in touch through your own blog. Thanks again for your comment.

    I enjoyed reading your entire interview regarding my grandfather,the late Marcel Delgado.
    Any chance of a copy of the audio, or where I can hear it to share with my family particularly, letting my mother know about it. She would love to hear her father's voice again 40 some years after he passed. I'd like to talk with you more about your interview with him at some point as well.



  3. Hi obitguy, and thanks for the good word. As for uploading the audio file, I have no objection to sharing, but to be honest, it's rather long, and Mr. Delgado was extremely soft-spoken; it's not always easy to hear him. Plus — and I blush to say this — it was my first interview and I did tend to babble more than I should (my own questions are edited to make me sound less like a doofus; Mr. Delgado's answers are verbatim to the best of my ability).

  4. Thank you so much for sharing this great interview with us. It would be great if you could upload the actual audio interview.
