Radio silence

Not the silence there’s been on this blog, but a short Radio 4 programme about silence, made by the poet Sean Street, available here at the moment; it includes a short poem about Quaker Meetings for Worship by Sean, music by John Cage (no, not THAT piece of music) and Miles Davies, a poem by Rupert Brooke, the wisdom of John Berger, and, right in the middle there, a short extract from the book of my PhD thesis. Unexpected. Distinguished company. I don’t claim anything for “my” bit, but it’s worth listening to this just to check that it’s possible to make a radio programme about silence. Turns out that it is.
