The complete Studs Terkel Radio Archives (consisting of thousands of interviews and programs mostly originally broadcast between 1952 and 1998 on WFMT radio in Chicago) will eventually be available on a free streaming website complete with images, descriptive text and other contextual materials and extensive search tools. The programs currently available here are online in order to facilitate transcription, translation and other tests as well as to raise awareness of this project.
The official website is being created through a partnership between the WFMT Radio Network, the Chicago History Museum, the Library of Congress, Pop Up Archive and other partners. We expect a first version of the website to launch in mid-2014.
