I truly enjoyed this broadcast, Carrie, and in particular the renditions of the chosen pieces by the reader, the name of whom I should like to remember. His interpretation seemed so natural and convincing. I would like to hear him read ALL of the Crazy Janes!ReplyDelete
Enjoy the Guinness (a different strain to the English version) and well done! You broached well the enduring issue of poets and polemics.
