In honor of Corky Siegel’s 80th birthday and the 60 years he’s devoted to the harmonic convergence of blues and classical music, here is his 1976 conversation with Studs Terkel. The ebullient harmonica virtuoso and composer was born in Chicago on October 24, 1943, and we wish him many happy returns of the day.
