Author and radio interviewer Studs Terkel presents excerpts from his Chicago radio program which aired from 1955 to 1989. Presented mostly in chronological order, these forty interviews provide an oral history of the last four decades. Terkel is the consummate interviewer with his gravely voice and insightful and probing questions. He provides introductions for each of the decades, and musical excerpts separate many of the interviews. To hear Pete Seeger sing in 1955, a young Toni Morrison read from her second novel in 1974, or composer John Cage discuss his work in 1982, along with the words of the 37 other actors, philosophers, artists, musicians and authors, is truly an extraordinary listening experience.
