In a program from June of 2014, Andrew Patner shares a conversation with Riccardo Muti. The Chicago Symphony Orchestra music director talks about Verdi he has not conducted, Richard Strauss works he plans to add to his repertoire, and the role of principal players in an ensemble.
In a program from November of 2011, Andrew Patner features music recorded by Wisconsin-based pianist Nicholas Phillips of Croatian composer Boris Papandopulo (1906-1991).
Studs discusses his book AND THEY ALL SANG: Adventures of an Eclectic Disc Jockey.
"It is the only interview that I know of done with Studs where he discusses in detail his passion for opera and opera singers including Rosa Raisa, Lotte Lehmann, and "his" diva, Claudia Muzio. Studs also talks about his disc jockey days in general and the music editions of The Best of Studs Terkel on WFMT. We play opera scenes with Raisa, Lehmann, Muzio, and a song by Woody Guthrie as well." -Andrew
