I just heard that a friend of mine once heard an interview of Rav Ruderman zt"l (of Ner Yisroel), by Chofetz Chaim talmidim - in English. I didn't even know that he spoke English.
Does anyone have a link for access to that interview?

I found here a website which mentions an interview in English that he had with Chofetz Chaim talmidim about the Alter of Slabodka - is that what your friend could have meant? It writes there:

I almost had to make sure I wasn’t dreaming, when I download and started listening to the recording of an interview with former Slabodka talmid, and founder of Yeshiva Ner Israel, Rav Yaakov Yitzchok Ruderman zt’l.

The recording of R Ruderman is available here. The mp3 is a series of questions and answers about the Alter of Slabodka, Rav Nosson Tzvi Finkel conducted by students from Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim, prior to 1987 (when R Ruderman was niftar).

  • It's often really hard to understand him; is he dropping into Yiddish a lot?
