On this edition of The Arts Section, host Gary Zidek takes a closer look at the new Studs Terkel Radio Archive. Terkel conducted over 5600 hours worth of interviews during the course of his 45 years at WFMT. Now those interviews are available to the public through a new online archive.  Later in the show, Daily Herald columnist Sean Stangland joins Gary to talk about the summer movie season. What movies will make the biggest impact over the next few months? The Dueling Critics, Kelly Kleiman and Jonathan Abarbanel, stop by to review Ike Holter's new play THE LIGHT FANTASTIC. And Gary reviews the new documentary, ALWAYS AT THE CARLYLE. Plus, the weekly Arts Section calendar.
