  2. Oliver Sacks: A Neurologist At The ‘Intersection Of Fact And Fable’

    In a 1985 interview, Sacks told Gross that watching the patients emerge from the catatonic state was like standing at "the intersection of fact and fable. You see infinitely moving, dramatic, romantic situations, but also clearly based on the state of the nervous system."

    Fresh Air remembers Sacks with two interviews from 1985 and 2012.

  3. Author, Author

    There were a lot of quiz shows on old-time radio, but none were quite like Author, Author. Famous authors, led by Ellery Queen, had to create a story that made sense out of a nonsense situation that was thrown at them. Ellery Queen was really two people - a pair of cousins named Manfred Lee and Frederic Dannay. This is the pilot episode, and the host here is humorist-poet Ogden Nash. When the show was picked up for the regular schedule three months later, the host was humorist S.J. Perelman.

    This pilot episode, The $2,001 Watch, was originally broadcast on January 4, 1939.
