We lost Lawrence Ferlinghetti in February at the ripe old age of 101. On this week’s show, we celebrate the life of “The Godfather of the Beats.” We’ll hear the poet read two of his own verses, as well as a memory from Jack Kerouac and a reading from Ed Begley, Sr. of a piece by Walt Whitman. Musically, we'll hear from Aztec Two-Step who took their name from a line from a Ferlinghetti poem, Mose Allison, Patti Smith, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Tom Waits and Rickie Lee Jones. Tune in and enjoy a very literary episode … this week on The Sing Out! Radio Magazine.\
