Charlie Baum Obit: Studs Terkel - 31 Oct 2008 96 yrs old (54* d) RE: Obit: Studs Terkel - 31 Oct 2008 96 yrs old 02 Nov 08


The Chicago Tribune wrote an editorial memory of Studs which included the following lines about Stud's connection with folk music:

"He was the kind of man who would hum Pete Seeger folk songs long after the other Pete Seeger hummers moved to the suburbs, reproduced, went pop and happily joined the middle class. He may well have been second only to Alan Lomax, the great collector of all American musical tradition, in his appreciation of folk songs, which he would turn to time and again for his radio shows, even for his book titles."
