Studs Terkel in Conversation with American Poets from WFMT and The Poetry Foundation

That's right, you angel-headed hipsters who listen to hydrogen jukeboxes, it's National Poetry Month again! To celebrate this year, we'll be airing airing several selections from the Studs Turkel Radio Archives over these last two weeks of April.

First, we'll hear Studs exploring how poetry enables people to channel the voices of others -- featuring excerpts from interviews with Elma Stuckey and John Ciardi. Then strap in for adventure, we're travelling to Africa with James Baldwin and are headed on an interplanetary rocket-poem trip with Allen Ginsberg and other Beats.
