As some of you may know, Dave Beck, longtime KUOW jack-of-all-trades, has moved across town to Classical KING FM. We searched for his award-winning interview of historian Stephen Ambrose, to no avail. But we did dig up this incredible letter Ambrose wrote after Beck won the national PRNDI award for his interview with the author. We’re posting it because it’s too good to leave dusty in our archives.

Our favorite line: “In response to your first question, ‘If you could be any animal, what would you be?’ I said mountain goat. After some thought, I’d actually be a tortoise. They live much longer."
