The Poetry & Music of Men

9030416059_c8b9c8bf8e_m

Today we’re looking at the theme of Men so we’ll be doing man stuff like taking out the trash with Charles Bukowski, a bit of carpentry with Carl Denis and reading about the softer side of a man’s nature with Adam Waterhouse and Cecil Day-Lewis.  Music today comes from Leonard Cohen, Josh Ritter and Mark Knopfler.
