1. radiOM.org - Words Program No. 2: Tom Clark and Ron Padgett [6.764% Popularity: 0.00000]
Words: Program No. 2: Tom Clark and Ron Padgett Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 62 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA An Academy of American Poets reading at the Guggenheim Museum, recorded on March 5, 1968. Tom Clark and Ron Padgett read a selection of their poetry, including some collaborative works. Highlights include a funny variation of one of James Wright’s poems “Outside Fargo, North Dakota” (which is also read for necessary comparisons), as well as two “postcard poems” in which the addresses are turned into verse, to amuse the postal workers and to see if artistic renderings of such important details would still allow the cards to reach their intended recipients. The rest of the poems, many of which are less than a minute in length, run the gamut, from odes written by a fictional poets to descriptions of Grandma Moses wearing sunglasses. It’s an hour long reading of American poetry written in the style typical of the late 20th century, funny, sexy, and insightful. Warning: co...

Words: Program No. 14: Ted Berrigan and Ron Padgett Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 50 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA One in a series of programs produced by Clark Coolidge that feature the works of late 20th century poets, sound poets, and authors. In this recording you will hear two poetry readings. The first, by Ted Berrigan, given in Iowa City on Oct. 13, 1968, and the other by Berrigan and Ron Padgett, given in New York City in 1964. Both members of the New York School of young poets active during the 1960s and beyond, Berrigan and Padgett write short and often humorous poems. In these works, many of which were written in collaboration with other poets, either living or dead, Berrigan and Padgett offer ruminations on the battle over alternating current, dirty limericks, thoughts about war, drugs and sex, and a host of other poetical insights. Their irreverent re-workings of some of the great poems of the past, such as Robert Frost’s “The Birches” and Ezra Pound’s “The Pact” ...

Ode To Gravity: Interview with Ned Rorem, Nov. 16, 1987 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 62 min Event Type: Music and Interview Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Ned Rorem reflects on his work and on being an American composer in this Ode To Gravity program from November 16, 1987. Interviewers Charles Amirkhanian and LaFleur Paysour refer to Rorem's writings in “The Nantucket Diary” and “The Paris Diary” to illustrate various topics including the musical setting of poems, the decline of the art song, and gender and race politics in music. Rorem then offers his opinions on a number of 20th century poets and composers, and registers his distaste for "specialization" in American composition. Rorem also shares anecdotes about his creative process. Musical excerpts include "Spring and Fall", "Air Music", "The Lordly Hudson", and "We Never Said Farewell".

4. radiOM.org - Words Program No. 15: Philip Whalen and Bill Berkson [5.061% Popularity: 0.00000]
Words: Program No. 15: Philip Whalen and Bill Berkson Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 38 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA One in a series of programs produced by Clark Coolidge that feature the works of late 20th century poets, sound poets, and authors. This program begins with a fairly low quality recording, made in Kyoto Japan on June 9, 1967, of Philip Whalen reading some of his poems, mixed with another recording of Whalen chanting sutras and playing on wooden blocks and other basic percussion instruments. This is followed by Bill Berkson reading a selection of poems from his books “Saturday Night” and “Shining Leaves.” Both are fine examples of the sort of counterculture poetics prevalent during the 1960s. Note: Contains some profanity. Names of poems taken from the authors introductions and may not exactly match those found in published books. Musical Selections: Waiting for Claude (2:26) / Philip Whalen -- Demachi (O:44) / Philip Whalen -- [Poem, like a bird...] (0:11) / Phi...
5. radiOM.org - Charles Reznikoff Memorial Reading [5.001% Popularity: 0.00000]
Charles Reznikoff Memorial Reading Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 82 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA A veritable who’s who of American poets, many hailing from New York City, read their favorite poems by Charles Reznikoff and others, during a memorial for the late Jewish American poet, author, and playwright. Those marking the passing of the first of the Objectivist poets included, Allen Ginsberg, Ron Padgett, Joel Oppenheimer, Anne Waldman, Armand Schwerner, Charles North, and many others. The poems they selected represent the incredible range of Reznikoff’s writings; from one line mediations on a bridge, to excerpts from book length poems about Jewish history and the Holocaust. Written in the clear, plain language that was a hallmark of the Objectivist poets, this reading serves as a fitting memorial to a quintessential American poet of the 20th century, whose brightness now “dwindles into stars.” Note: All poems by Reznikoff except where noted. The attribution of these poems i...
