Studs Terkel, one of our radio heros, died October 31, 2008 at his home in Chicago. He was 96. We spend this hour with personal tributes, but mostly with Studs own work, ranging from interviews he did for WFMT, and for his many Oral History books, as well as interviews where he was the subject. He is missed.
Voices from the Edge host Dave Mazza invited listeners to lead the conversation on issues they felt important. Among the topics discussed were the U.S.'s failure to support strong carbon reduction goals at the Copenhagen conference, the ongoing environmental threats of LNG terminals and pipelines proposed for the Oregon coast, and the importance of local activism.
