David Broder on The Bob Edwards Show

Filed under: News, Radio Today, Bob Edwards Archives — Charlie Summers @ 9:59 pm

From the very first program, David Broder was a fixture. The very first guest, he and Bob discussed the upcoming election and other political issues; and I, of course, came to depend on Mr. Broder’s weekly examination of politics on The Bob Edwards Show. I frequently referred to, “my favorite segment of my favorite show,” a not-to-be-missed start to my work week. Not being good with change, I never did quite get used to hearing him on Friday mornings instead of his Monday appearances.

But on the program’s sixth anniversary, October 4th of 2010, Bob sat down in the studio to discuss not politics, but David Broder. The hour is a fascinating retrospective of an incredible career, and we can be grateful this interview took place, because it wasn’t long after that Mr. Broder was no longer with us.

From the introduction:

Today our little radio program is six years old and we thank you for sustaining us through these hard times. So to celebrate our entering a seventh year, we happy few, we band of six brothers and four sisters devote the full hour to the man who has been an important part of our history.

Washington Post columnist David Broder was my first guest on our first show back in 2004 and he has been analyzing politics for us every week of our existence. Broder is the Pulitzer Prize-winning dean of Washington political reporters going back to the Eisenhower years of the 1950’s. That’s before our current President was even born in Hawaii or Kenya or Venus or wherever the wingnuts are saying this week.

So sit back and let Bob Edwards guide you through a retrospective of the career of David Broder, Dean of the Washington Press Corps.
