When CBS hired Roger Mudd in 1961, his new boss nervously asked him if he'd ever had any trouble with his last name. Mudd said no and rose to broadcast journalistic excellence in spite of it. Having such a talented and familiar correspondent narrate his memoirs adds delicious frosting to a spicy cake. With self-deprecating humor and an eye for a good story, Mudd remembers events and people with a keen ability to render them as listenable and entertaining. Because he stays as emotionally detached as he does when he’s on the air, the performance eerily sounds like Roger Mudd doing a newscast. He met some important people and witnessed some important history in his career, and curious listeners will delight in hearing his reflections.
