Former U.S. Senator Joe Tydings died at age 90, on Monday, October 8, 2018.  Here is the On the Record interview from August, 2018.

At 90, former U.S. Senator Joseph Tydings has fascinating stories to spin of growing up in a family both wealthy and politically connected. As a young delegate in Annapolis Tydings was already irritating those in power in 1960 when he threw himself into campaigning for a presidential hopeful named Jack Kennedy.

With John Frece, former U.S. Sen. Joseph Tydings has written a memoir titled "My Life in Progressive Politics: Against the Grain."

Frece will be speaking about what went into writing it Sunday at 5 pm at the Ivy Bookshop on Falls Road.
