Sandburg Tonight, Awesome

I listened to the one hour program on Sandburg on Friday evening and it repeats tonight at 7 PM on KCME, which you can also stream on KCME Radio on your computer. The program is totally awesome, including excellent background info on Sandburg, him reading his poems at the Library of Congress, selections from his American Song Bag, songs he collected as spoken or sung to him by people all across America — a chorale group singing some of his poetry, also the song 100 miles from the American Song Bag, and yours truly, interviewed about his poetry and I recite one of Sandburg’s poems. The program is one hour and I am in the second half. I encourage you to listen to the whole hour, it is wonderful.
