AOL is Rejecting the OTR Digest again…

Filed under: General — Charlie Summers @ 1:45 pm

Honest, folks, nothing I can do about it at this point - AOL users are not receiving the most recent issue of the Digest, not seeing errors from other systems at this point (always possible eventually). Nothing I can do…once they decide to allow the Digest through, you can always request a copy from the archive server.

Jimmy Breslin, Legendary New York City Newspaper Columnist, Dies at 88

Filed under: News, Radio Today, Bob Edwards Archives — Charlie Summers @ 11:03 am

From The New York Times: Jimmy Breslin, Legendary New York City Newspaper Columnist, Dies at 88

Back in 2008, Bob Edwards in Washington, D.C. and Jimmy Breslin in New York sat down for a conversation about his book The Good Rat: A True Story; but as was usual in Edwards’ interviews, there was much more than just the book, with much of Breslin’s long career in journalism examined. From the introduction:

Sammy the Bull and Jimmy the Clam are not just characters in a book-they are real people who Jimmy Breslin has known and written about. Breslin is the Pullitzer Prize-winning newspaper columnist who once wrote a novel called The Gang That Couldn’t Shoot Straight. His new book is called The Good Rat: A True Story. It’s about a witness who testified against his fellow gangsters and lived to tell about it.

Script/roadmap from the paper archives included.

Amy Krouse Rosenthal, Author and Filmmaker, Dies at 51

Filed under: News, Radio Today, Bob Edwards Archives — Charlie Summers @ 6:55 pm

From the New York Times: Amy Krouse Rosenthal, Author and Filmmaker, Dies at 51

Earlier this month, Ms. Rosenthal published a piece in The New York Times titled, You May Want to Marry My Husband. Anyone who has faced cancer with a loved one, or indeed anyone with a pulse, cannot help but be moved reading that article, especially armed with the knowledge it is her last published work. But to celebrate her life and the gusto with which she lived it, I suggest listening to this 2012 conversation with Bob Edwards, a conversation held long before the diagnosis in 2015 that devastated the family, a conversation filled with joy and contemplation. From the introduction:

Best-selling author Amy Krouse Rosenthal has made a score of books for children. For the rest of us she’s made short videos you can see on YouTube. And though she says she’s on sabbatical, one suspects she’s making something else somewhere. For most of the next hour, she’s right here describing her missions—her connections with the universe-including the video called 17 things I made and the invitation to the general public to join her in a park and make an 18th thing. Rosenthal discusses creativity, getting something out of nothing, and why she does the things she does.

Script/roadmap included below.

Bob Edwards talks to Crosby, Stills, and Nash

Filed under: Radio Today, Bob Edwards Archives — Charlie Summers @ 3:55 pm

There is a whole lot of great music represented in this photograph…

On The Bob Edwards Show, music and the musicians who create it played a huge role. Here, Bob in the Washington, D.C. studio talks to Stephen Stills, Graham Nash, and David Crosby in the New York Sirius Studios about their then-recent release Demos. But of course with these three guys, the conversation travels decades of musical history, with lots of drops to remind us of the many high points of their careers.

In some ways, this interview harkens back to happier times…the men are not nearly as close now as they were when this program aired.

In the last segment, Bob talks to Martin Goldsmith about the 149th birthday of Gustav Mahler. Script/roadmap included below for purists.

Bob also chatted separately with Graham Nash, and twice with David Crosby, so I think I’ll run those programs in the coming weeks.

Neil deGrasse Tyson on the Bob Edwards Show Redux

Filed under: Radio Today, Bob Edwards Archives — Charlie Summers @ 12:31 pm

Here is another entire program with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, this time broadcast in April of 2013. I have often remarked they should have paid this guy to show up quarterly and just talk about what’s new in science…the guy is so filled with passion about the cool stuff scientists keep discovering or predicting, just listening to him makes one feel good about the future. If you haven’t heard the earlier show I posted, make sure you give that one a listen, too.

Now-obligatory script/roadmap also included below.
