From 1952 to 1997, Studs Terkel frequently filled his daily radio programs with a wide and wonderful variety of music.  On these occations he would select a range of recordings through which he told a story or conveyed whatever thematic ideas he had in mind. Tonight we bring you the very last of those shows from his long career at WFMT.  The broadcast aired on December 18, 1997, and he called it, “the last picture program of recorded music.”
