Until very recently, all the announcements that began "funding for NPR…" were delivered in the sonorous tones of Mr. Tavares. 

A lot is happening in his life.  Not only does NPR have a new underwriter voice, but Frank Tavares just released a book collecting some of his short stories, "The Man Who Built Boxes." 

He joins us to talk about all of his jobs.
