The death of Studs Terkel sent me back to my early teen years. Saturday mornings I listed to his radio show and Saturday afternoons I listened to Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis' radio show. I did that for years. It was such a routine part of my Saturdays. I can't imagine too many people now actually count "sitting and listening to the radio" as an activity in and of itself. I listen to radio now while I'm cooking, driving, and during light reading. Man, that was back in the day when radio and tv stations acutally signed off!!!! As much as I love my internet access I do infrequently mourn the 24-7 availabity to plug-into-any-technology-drug-of-choice that we have.
But this time internet access is failing me and I'm desperate to find issued cds of the archived radio shows with Dee and Davis. The name of the show was With Ossie and Ruby. If anyone out there who stumbles by or comes to visit can lead me in the right direction or strong clue, please help me out! I'll be so happy and grateful!
Thanks, now I'm off to see if I can find Studs' shows on cd.
