Rosenthal, Katz, Brown on Allen

Among the mass of material that emerged around, and subsequent to, the 50th Anniversary of Howl, in 2006, was this – Radio Netherlands’ “An Angel Headed Hipster’s Howl, a thirty-minute radio show (in English) featuring personal memories and lucid interpretation of Allen from Bob Rosenthal (we can’t wait for Bob’s upcoming biography), Eliot Katz (Eliot speaks at length and reads his poem/elegy to Allen) and Kurt Brown (poet, and professor at Sarah Lawrence College, providing a necessary academic perspective). The show, which first aired in May 2007, has been preserved as one of Radio Netherlands’ “classic docs” and may be listened to in its entirety here.
