It’s no exaggeration that one of my great honors was to be invited on John Seigenthaler’s literary talk show “A Word on Words” twice. For 44 years, Mr. Seigenthaler held court interviewing a gamut of writers from the titans to the debuts. With neither a script nor cheat sheet, he could remember the tiniest detail of all the books he’d devoured. And the highlight, off-camera, was to trade out a fresh copy of a book for his copy covered with notes. I keep mine in a safe place.
To my Nashville friends: I hope you’ll join us for our final sit-down this Sunday morning at 10:30 on Npt. It’s Mr. Seigenthaler’s next-to-last interview and the last time I saw him. We’ll be chewing over “The Union Club.” Thank you, Mr. Seigenthaler.
For all others, I’ll post the podcast when they do.
