Studs Terkel Biography:

Studs Terkel helped redefine the concept of radio interviews and established oral history as a popular and socially ambitious literary genre, among many other activities during his bounteous 96-year life (1912-2008). Chicago’s fine arts station 98.7 WFMT was his base for more than five decades, starting in 1952. His daily radio show was pillar of WFMT’s programming, with its eclectic and astute mix of music, conversations with the many of the 20th century’s most significant cultural and social justice figures juxtaposed by the voices of uncelebrated working people from Chicago and the world and forays into radio documentary, radio theater and front-line oral history/journalism. He was author of more than a dozen books such as Division StreetHard TimesWorkingRace and And They All Sang (Adventures of an Eclectic Disc Jockey) several of which won major awards such as the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award. He was a dedicated foe of cultural amnesia. His complete Radio Archive (5,600 programs) is being developed by the WFMT Radio Network and Chicago History Museum (www.studsterkel.org) and the Studs Terkel Estate is guiding his legacy more broadly. His self-chosen epitaph is: “curiosity did not kill this cat!”
