We'll miss you Studs!

Today we lost one of the greatest radio programmers Chicago has ever seen. Studs Terkel was a great friend to WBEZ through the years (you can listen to his work that aired on WBEZ here). If, by some strange chance, you're not familiar with Studs, just check out this interview he gave Jon Stewart on the Daily Show back in 2006. I don't think it's a stretch to say that Stewart owes some of his success to Studs' trailblazing work.
