4-20-12: A Note on Dudley Clendinen

April 20, 2012 at 7:50 am 5 comments

 From February 2011 to this past January, host Tom Hall spoke regularly with the writer Dudley Clendinen, about his experience with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.  We ended the series because Dudley’s voice wasn’t strong enough–but we wanted to keep you updated.  Here, Tom has an update on Dudley–including how an op-ed he published last July in The New York Times was honored as one of the Best American Essays of 2012.

You can listen to all of the series in  “Living with Lou: Dudley Clendinen on a Good, Short Life” at this link.

    I have been unable to locate the update on Dudley Clendinen that was to have been posted on 4-20-12. All I can retrieve is “file not found.”

    Please advise.

      Thanks for alerting us–should be okay now.

    Now there is an audio file up, instead of video, but it plays an interview about opera, not an update on Dudley.

    Thanks for the update. I have conversations with Dudley bookmarked — i originally found them after reading his NYT essay, and I listened to, enjoyed, every one. Love his sense of humor, and pragmatism, and playfulness. Thanks for the detail in the update. I will check back for more.

    I was so pleased that “Maryland Morning” and Tom Hall arranged time and space for Dudley Clendinen to say what he wanted to say to the radio audience last year. He loved our “space” on the planet and could not depart without being “among us.” There has never been a more engaged, enthusiastic, fully developed human being! Annette P. Sale
