A while back I mentioned that David Foster Wallace was slated to appear on John Ziegler’s KFI show to discuss his lengthy (and worthwhile) Atlantic Monthly profile of Ziegler. Apparently, this never happened. From Ziegler’s website:
[Wallace] was invited on to the show to discuss, in a friendly manner, his observations (as well as some of the inaccuracies) in the article, but he was apparently too much of a coward and without enough gratitude for the access we gave him to even provide us with an hour of his time.
A shame. It would have been a Great Moment In Radio.
