In a part one of a two-part program that first aired on WFMT December 30, 2013, Andrew Patner presents Black Sabbath: The Secret Musical History of Black-Jewish Relations, a remarkable collection of Black American recording artists performing Yiddish and other Jewish songs.
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
