Fresh Air went national in 1987, and we're celebrating that 20th anniversary by revisiting some classic broadcasts. In this segment: Novelist Richard Price. His gritty urban style is evident in bestsellers like Clockers, Freedomland and Samaritan. Price is also a screenwriter, with credits including adaptations The Color of Money, Mad Dog and Glory, and The Wire, HBO's award-winning series. Recorded in 1985, when Fresh Air was a local daily radio show in Philadelphia.
