Mike Foster Interview on NZ Radio Can't Post

Our friend and LOTR Alum Actor Bruce Hopkins sends this in regarding his radio program: I had a chat with Mike Foster, who heads the US Tolkien Society and is a Professor of English. During his college days at Marquette University he got into Tolkien and was able to actually use Tolkiens original hand written manuscripts! He tells us how Tolien actually wrote on the back of exam papers and so the reverse side had comments to students with regard their marks etc. We only had 9 minutes to talk, but I will chat with Mike on another show and carry on our Tolkien conversations. More..

That was a neat interview :) [In reply to] Can't Post

I always love hearing Mike Foster speak about Tolkien and his experience. He's a direct connection to where this all started in the first person. And you can tell his affection for Tolkien and his work has never faded. Good for Bruce to ask him what he thinks of the process of putting together The Hobbit & casting!

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.
