The Best of Radio Times


Guests: Pat Conroy, Terry Teachout, Adrian Raine

Today we continue the Best of Radio Times…. Playing excerpts of the interviews that you have enjoyed…and we did too. It’s special broadcast for the WHYY mini-membership drive. We begin with PAT CONROY, whose best-selling novel, “The Great Santini,” was turned into a movie, starring Robert Duvall. He joins us to talk about coming to terms about his difficult relationship with his father described in his memoir, “The Death of Santini.” Then we celebrate the life and music of Duke Ellington with TERRY TEACHOUT, The Wall Street Journal drama critic. And we end the hour with something completely different, the biological roots of crime with ADRIAN RAINE, author of “The Anatomy of Violence.”
