    The main feed; in a news aggrigator, it's the news items, in a podcast client, it's the media files.

    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

Daniel Schorr at 100

Filed under: News, Radio Today, Bob Edwards Archives — Charlie Summers @ 11:02 pm

Daniel Louis Schorr was born on August 31, 1916, one hundred years ago today. And the guy lived an amazing life, managing to cover the bulk of the 20th century; reading his own name on live television from Richard Nixon’s “enemies list,” joining Ted Turner’s fledgling news organization, commentating for National Public Radio, and writing bunches of books, including a few we have signed.

And on January 2nd, 2008, he spent the entire hour with Bob Edwards. Below is that interview in its entirety, along with the now-ubiquitous script.

(As a passing note, I also have the unedited interview taken from the DAT recorded in the studio and salvaged from destruction by Chad Campbell. Tomorrow I plan to listen, and if there are any nuggets not included in the broadcast interview, I’ll let you know.)
