One of their longtime hosts was the great chronicler Studs Terkel, who had a nighttime interview show for decades. (His official title in the program guide was listed as “Free spirit.”) The station still broadcasts the Best of Studs Terkel, Friday nights at 10 PM, from their archives.
For all you folkies out there, tonight at 10 PM in Chicago (adjust your clocks accordingly), they’re re-airing his interview with…Pete Seeger – along with two of his siblings, Peggy and Mike, both accomplished folksingers in their own right.
