Mon, 12/10/2012

 In the 1950s, Studs Terkel was confronted for his leftist sympathies by the FBI and the notorious House Unamerican Activities Committee.  Commemorating the centenary of Studs Terkel's birth, Old Mole Alan Wieder recalls some of that history as our nation is again obsessed with national security.  This segment concludes with a song about Studs sung by John Langford at a celebration of Studs's 100th birthday in May.
