Dick Cavett published his memoir, Cavett, in 1974. Soon thereafter, he and co-author Chris Porterfield were Studs Terkel’s guests on WFMT. They spoke of Cavett’s early years in Nebraska, his time as a comedy gag-writer, his long-running ABC talk show, and the manner in which the book allows readers to know him on a more personal level.
