Speaking of Radio

Chuck Schaden's Conversations with the Stars Who Made it Golden


Milton Berle

Recorded November 10th, 1970 - 21 min

 Before his pioneering television career, Uncle Milty spent a lot of time in radio.  He had a number of his own programs throughout the 1940s after a career in vaudeville and film. He was born July 12, 1908 and was 62 at the time of our visit in the Green Room at the Mill Run Theatre in suburban Chicago. On stage with him, and briefly joining our conversation are Chicago Cubs’ Ernie Banks and Ron Santo. Mr. Berle died March 27, 2002 at age 93.
