Live from February 1996  TIM CARMODY  ·  AUG 13 2010

Roger Ebert just tweeted:

Terry Gross is re-running an interview with Gene Siskel and me on NPR's "Fresh Air" today.

The episode isn't up on NPR's site yet, but a search of the archives turns up only one hit for Gene Siskel on Fresh Air:

Film Critics GENE SISKEL and ROGER EBERT join Terry Gross on stage in Chicago for a "live" audience version of Fresh Air. This was recorded in February 1996. The duo began their TV collaboration in 1975 on Chicago Public Television station WTTW. After two successful season, the program became a national PBS show. In 1981 it moved to commercial television.Their show is now known as "Siskel and Ebert" and is heard in 180 markets. Gene Siskel is film colmnist for the Chicago Tribune, and Roger Ebert is critic for the Chicago Sun-Times. "Siskel and Ebert" has been nominated for five national emmy awards. Ebert has recieved a Pulitzer Prize for film criticism.

I don't know how people in the industry feel, but for me, the internet is the best thing that ever happened to radio.
