I've listed Scott Simon as among the most listenable on the radio. A 
moment I can't forget is back after 9/11 when the plan crashed in a 
neighborhood. Simon is interviewing a firefighter whose family 
perished.  Scott's interview (and understandable emotional release) was 
as good as it gets.

Ryssdal (thanks for the spelling Scott!) has a great natural style.
