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 Come In At The Door, a dramatization of Algren’s writings with a special nod to Chicago. The program is enacted by Herman Kogan, Studs Terkel, Helen Malone, Jamie Gilson and others. To conclude the hour, we’ve added the Chicago Jazz Ensemble’s recording of “Studs,” the fourth movement of Chicago Suite No. 1, by William Russo.
