Great Show

Hey David,

Enjoyed travelling the spaceways with you.

I think my favorite part was the run of songs immediately following your reading of 'The State of the Cosmos.'

You chose some of my very favorite poems from 'This Planet...' to recite on the air. I could almost (but not quite) follow along with your reading from memory. Loved all of it!

Another air time?

Hi David,
Just saw the article on your Sun Ra show. I used to listen to him at the Knitting Factory in NYC many years ago. So great. Sorry I missed your broadcast. Will it be repeated sometime? Thanks for sending out a true genius.
A Very Happy New Year to you,
