On April 24, 2013 Steve Rossi went to the StoryCorps trailer at the Historic Fifth Street School in Las Vegas to record his life story to be included in the national time capsule. This story is also preserved with Library of Congress Folklife collection. StoryCorps travels the country with a mobile studio in an AirStream trailer recording great America stories.
Steve sat down in the studio with Lisa Polito to record this interview. It is about 41 minutes long. Steve consented to allow his story to be used for future projects about the history of Las Vegas. Steve was in good health and good spirits for this interview. StoryCorps graciously gave permission to publish his interview on this website.
If you know someone who has a colorful life story please encourage them to sit down with StoryCorps to record their story. This was an experience Steve truly enjoyed and was honored to have his legacy preserved in this way.
