If you tuned in to our "Dreams" show in January, you might remember David Edwards: an urban planner in Fairfax County, Va., in the 1960s and 70s. Edwards died last week, after a long battle with cancer. We remember him, by playing an excerpt of his interview with WAMU transportation reporter David Schultz.
