Get the Latest Updates about the Archive on the Studs Terkel Blog
From civil rights to labor to jazz, Studs’s work spanned an impressive array of topics and figures. These enchanting, historically-significant interviews — which have been largely inaccessible to the public — will soon come to life in a new website hosting the comprehensive Studs Terkel Radio Archive. While the website is still in development, the Studs Terkel Blog will serve as an informational hub for all relevant news about the Studs Terkel Archive. Here you will be able to find the following:
- Selected Interviews From the Archive
We know that many of you are impatient to get your hand on the treasure trove of Stud’s interviews. So periodically we’ll be using the Studs Terkel Blog to whet your appetite by featuring some of our most popular interviews from movers and shakers, and regular folks, too.
- Updates on Our Partnerships
Here at the archive we have a huge network of partnerships working with such organizations as Pop Up Archive, Mediaburn, PRX, Third Coast International Audio Festival, and even the Library of Congress. Each of them contributes something different to the archive, and as as the pieces for the website begin to come together we’ll feature each of them in turn.
- Guest Curator Series
We’re asking people who knew Studs, who have been influenced by him, or who see a connection between their own work and his to listen and reflect on an interview of their choice. You can hear those podcasts first on the blog, and find the entire collection on our Guest Curator Podcast page.
- New Audio Works
Producers from the next generation of radio will be encouraged to use our archival recordings in new creations and when they do you can find them here first.
- Studs-inspired Creations
From animators to actors, these interviews inspiring all kinds of artists. We’ll be showcasing and discussing their projects here.
