At the beginning of the new millenium on January 20, 2000, the Los Angeles county Museum of Art hosted a conversation between Tim Robbins and Studs Terkel. Studs was 87 years old at that time, and Tim was just about half that age.
What transpired over the next hour would become one of the most animated, entertaining and educational recordings in the Pacifica Radio Archives. The chemistry between these two titans of media was electric, and Robbins was a magnificent conduit to effortlessly extract a lifetime of knowledge and story from Studs.
This week on From the Vault, we present Tim Robbins in conversation with Studs Terkel.
