  • Tributes

    On today’s show: We’ve reached into our archives to replay some of my interviews with people who passed away this year.
    First, author and illustrator Maurice Sendak. Then Rodney King and his fiancé Cynthia Kelley. And writer and filmmaker Nora Ephron talks about aging, memory, and the perfect pie. In the second hour cookbook writer Marion Cunningham discussed about getting back to basics when she was on the show in 1999. Then we’ll replay a 2005 interview with reporter Anthony Shadid about his time covering the war in Iraq. Plus, author David Rakoff looked at the positive side of pessimism when he was here in 2010.

    You can see all of our tributes here, and listen to interviews with people such as George McGovern, Robert Hughes, Ray Bradbury, and Mike Wallace.
