Mahalia Jackson

Tonight on Best of Studs Terkel, we bring you an archive favorite and one of the programs that Studs loved best. This broadcast took place in 1957 at the old Hotel Morrison on the near west side of Chicago, where WFMT’s studios were first located. We’re in the ballroom, which is filled to capacity. Studs is in his element, hosting this live concert with his friend, gospel great Mahalia Jackson.
