How Louis Armstrong Became Satchmo: The Amazing Lost Interview

"You've got to be good or as bad as the devil."—Louis Armstrong

In 1964, two high school students interviewed "Satchmo" in his dressing room after a concert at Ravinia outside Chicago. It's never been heard until now. 

Remarkable stuff as Armstrong drops wisdom about "keeping up the chops" and how he made it from an orphanage to becoming one of the most famous musicians in the world.

Oh, and he did the interview in his boxers.
