Steve Staruch and Bruce Southworth on WCAL

An interview with Sherlockian Bruce Southworth on Sherlock Holmes is one of the latest entries from the Sherlock Holmes Collections to the U Media Archive. The recording dates from January 6, 1992 (another interview on Holmes' birthday) and is interspersed with some musical pieces.

Bruce Southworth is an invested member of the Baker Street Irregulars (as Victor Hatherley) and has been a member of both the Norwegian Explorers and Friends of the Sherlock Holmes Collections. Steve Staruch, the host of the program, can now be heard on Classical Minnesota Public Radio. Previously he hosted a number of programs on WCAL, including a weeknight program of sacred and contemplative music. An accomplished musician, Staruch is a violist with the Lyra Baroque Orchestra and his own group, the WolfGang. He was a tenor in the Dale Warland Singers for seven seasons and also sang in the Oregon Bach Festival.

WCAL operated on the campus of St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota until its purchase by Minnesota Public Radio. Our sincere thanks to Gary S. De Krey, professor of History and Archivist at St. Olaf for permission to post this interesting interview.
