My friends over at PBS Digital Studios have something really great to share today – a previously-unheard interview from LOUIS ARMSTRONG, conducted in 1964 by “two young kids” – Michael Aisner and James R. Stein, for the New Trier High School radio station. The interview took place at Ravinia – which is fairly close to Rock Father HQ here in Chicago’s Northern Suburbs, and features Satchmo discussing the origin of his nickname, how his career got started and more. It’s fascinating to hear, but also fun to watch as it’s been animated as part of BLANK ON BLANK, the ongoing series from David Gerlach. Check it out below.
