Studs Terkel Life & Legacy: A Special Premire

Studs Terkel (Credit InsideHook(July 21, 2017 – Segment 2

We hosted a very  a special collage of my interviews (over a 10-year period) with the great author, historian, actor, and broadcaster Studs Terkel. Studs was my radio hero. He wrote and created until he breathed his last breath in 2008 at the age of 96. On his radio show, which ran for 45 years in Chicago, he interviewed the greatest musicians, thinkers, and activists in the world. He’s also remembered for his oral histories of “common” Americans. He won the Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction in 1985 for The Good War. I hope you enjoy this very special presentation.
