Few mid-twentieth century authors portrayed the gritty spirit of American urban life as accurately or lovingly as Nelson Algren.  In 1958, Studs Terkel and Jim Unrath put together a dramatization of Algren’s writings, with a special nod to Chicago. Enacted by Herman Kogan, Studs Terkel, Helen Malone, Jamie Gilson and others, the program is called Come In At The Door.   The hour also includes the Chicago Jazz Ensemble’s recording of “Studs,” the fourth movement of Chicago Suite No. 1 by William Russo.
