Sunday with Cid Corman



It's Sunday with small press giant and self-effacing pioneer, Cid Corman. PennSound has a whole page dedicated to his readings.

I can't think of anything more spiritual for a lapsed agnostic like myself than to sit back and soak in his wisdom.

The fourth section of the readings contains an interview and question and answer period, with Cid and an audience communicating via telephone. There is a lot of personal history in the one hour plus broadcast, with some poems at the end. If you'd rather forgo the beginning, the poems from the hour long interview are broken out separately in listings 2 through 18.

Happy Sunday. Enjoy.


best,
Don

Thank you for this, from the bottom of my heart. I read a collection of Corman originals and translations earlier this year, and it moved me greatly. Can't wait to cozy up at home and take a listen to this!
