The great Ken Nordine—son of a 1933 World’s Fair architect, University of Chicago grad, former WBEZ mimeo operator, former WBBM announcer, voice-over artist, and long-time Word Jazz host—turns 90 today; Steve Edwards has more. In 1990, Adam Langer profiled Nordine for the Reader. In 2001, Michael Monteleone interviewed him for Salon.
