Today, HowSound marks the 100th birthday of Studs Terkel — America’s interviewer.
Syd Lewis worked with Studs for a good twenty-five years. Syd’s an oral historian in her own right and has published several books. On this HowSound I chat with Syd about Studs and we feature an excerpt from her hour-long documentary Working With Studs, produced by Atlantic Public Media. You can hear the entire documentary at PRX.
A birthday gift for himself will also make Syd happy -- she counts the dough!
Help Transom get new work and voices to public radio by donating now.
And, speaking of PRX, you can find a slew of programs about Studs there. And here. Listen to all of ‘em. Why not? He listened to all of us.
Happy Birthday Studs!
