Something led me to this site today and I thought I’d share it with you all. I’ve read several of Studs’ books and enjoyed them all. Lots of audio downloads about race, WWII, the depression, nuclear war, and others…
[quote]Studs Terkel : Conversations with America
Studs Terkel’s multifaceted life has produced an equally rich and varied legacy of research materials. After graduating from University of Chicago’s Law School in 1934, Terkel pursued acting and appeared on stage, in radio, and in the movies. He has been a playwright, a radio news commentator, a sportscaster, and a film narrator, and has worked as a jazz columnist, a disc jockey, and a music festival host. He even served briefly as a civil service employee but is best known as a radio network personality and as a Pulitzer Prize-winning author of books.
His award winning books are based on his extensive conversations with Americans from all walks of life that chronicle the profound and often tumultuous changes in our nation during the twentieth century. [/quote]
