Jake Shimabukuro and his Uke

Filed under: Radio Today, Bob Edwards Archives — Charlie Summers @ 6:36 pm

This is one of the favorite guests on The Bob Edwards Show, a young man who can take the ukulele, an instrument many of us think of as nothing more than a tiny guitar, and wring amazing sounds out of it. This interview, which originally aired on the Ides of March in 2011, is a full-show conversation with this virtuoso. From the introduction:

Jake Shimabukuro is back on the program today and we admit he has multiple fans on our staff. For one thing he is just a very nice, likeable young man. But it’s also impossible to ignore his impressive virtuosity on his musical instrument of choice—the humble ukelele. Something about the instrument makes us smile. Perhaps we regard it as a toy guitar. Or maybe it conjures up scenes of frat party sing-alongs in the 1920’s. Whatever, a uke is a fun thing. And in the skilled hands of Jake Shimabukuro, it can make fabulous music. Jake’s repertoire is all over the musical spectrum and he seems to favor challenging material—as we will hear for the next hour.

Script/roadmap included below. And a belated thanks to the show for the present!

Derek Jacobi on The Bob Edwards Show

Filed under: Radio Today, Bob Edwards Archives — Charlie Summers @ 5:02 pm

I love actors. As someone who studied the art a few lifetimes ago, I love listening to actors discuss their process. In this interview originally aired in June of 2012, Derek Jacobi discusses his classical stage work, film roles, and of course what is probably his most famous role, the stammering title character in the BBC television production of I, Claudius.

From the introduction:

All the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts. Those words from Shakespeare’s As You Like It apply to my guest today, Sir Derek Jacobi, one of the most celebrated and respected actors of our time. And while he’s performed all the great Shakespearean roles, Jacobi’s breakthrough came in 1976 when the BBC adapted two Robert Graves novels into a serial drama called I Claudius. He enjoyed more TV success as Brother Cadfael, a 12th century monk with a talent for solving mysteries. Derek Jacobi on his long and distinguished career for the full hour today.

Of course, script included below.

Carl Kasell on The Bob Edwards Show

Filed under: Radio Today, Bob Edwards Archives — Charlie Summers @ 1:16 pm

Quick apology…things around Chez Charlie have been rather hectic of late, and I haven’t had the time to get archived shows posted. I rectify that and attempt to make up for my absence by replaying an interview with one of the finest broadcasters ever - Carl Kasell. In early 2010, shortly after Carl retired from the daily newscast, he sat down in the studio with Bob for an awesome conversation. From the introduction:

Today’s guest may have been the hardest working man in the news business. Carl Kasell was an NPR newscaster for decades and it’s possible that no one will ever speak more words into an NPR microphone than Carl. Those were literally well-chosen words, too, for Carl’s judgement and experience informed his work every day. His was a signature voice of NPR News, and while he’s left daily news programs as of last week, he’ll continue to serve NPR in other ways we’ll discuss over the next hour. And, of course, nothing I’m telling you is colored by his being a very close friend—and until I meet a nicer one–Carl Kasell gets my vote for nicest human being I know.

Personally, he has my second-favorite voice in radio; with Bob Edwards he encouraged without realizing it my lifelong interest in news, and the team became the most recognizable voices I’ve ever known. And once you hear the conversation here, you’ll agree that these two guys should go on-the-road with a two-man show and just talk. Until then, enjoy this conversation produced by Chad Campbell and taken from a CD rescued from the offices, including the script/roadmap from the paper archives.

And yes, before you ask, the Carl Kasell Bobblehead pictured here is the one discussed in the studio, the one that sat in the Edwards Show offices. Holding the Bob Edwards Show archives has considerable advantages…since I’ll never win his voice on my answering machine, maybe I can get him to sign it one day.
