Studs Terkel's WFMT radio interview archives have been released, and I was at a party this week to celebrate it. So Terkel is on my mind. And my favorite video clip of him is this insane interview, where he asks novelist Nelson Algren why he's moving from Chicago to Paterson, New Jersey. To be closer to San Francisco, Algren says. And to Studs' helpless giggling delight, he explains.
Hat tip to the source of this video—Media Burn, a precious video trove, founded by my pal Tom Weinberg.
