This hour: the indomitable Studs Terkel.
Studs Terkel: The Last Touch
by Alan Hall (Falling Tree Productions, 2005)
Chicago is known for its deep dish pizza, its dazzling architecture, its sparkling lakefront, and Al Capone. But Chicago’s aural signature belongs only to one voice with an unmistakable style and sound: Studs Terkel.
Alan Hall visited Studs in Chicago in August 2005 and again in October. They recorded over two hours of interview that touched on Studs' work, his undiminished "radical conservatism" and his much-missed wife.
