Happy Birthday; Studs Terkel talks to Bob Edwards

Filed under: Radio Today, Bob Edwards Archives — Charlie Summers @ 5:01 pm

To celebrate the host’s birthday, here is an interview with another birthday boy…Studs Terkel was interviewed by Bob Edwards at his home in Chicago, IL for this broadcast aired July 29th, 2005. I’ll let the introduction explain:

Hello and welcome to The Bob Edwards Show for Friday, July 29th. Broadcaster and Pullitzer Prize-winning author Studs Terkel is the man of the hour-for the full hour-and it’s hardly enough time to cover the life and career of a 93-year-old American institution. Studs is such a talker that people are comfortable talking with him. Fortunately, he’s a good listener too and his conversations have produced fascinating oral history books about life in the past century. Studs Terkel also knows that one pays a price for speaking out, but trying to silence him would be like trying to stop the wind from blowing through Chicago.

Script/roadmap included below. Some additional links:
