Ronald Johnson reading; Piero Heliczer films


Ronald Johnson reads at Stanford University, November 19, 1989 (via Pennsound). I especially loved hearing his comments between poems and hearing him laugh to himself. It’s also great to hear the exchanges between Johnson and the small (?) audience. This is a website devoted to Johnson w/ some great info, (forthcoming) files, interviews, etc.

Two Piero Heliczer films on Ubuweb.On the same page, an obituary by Tom Raworth that gives some context for his work and life.

  1. yay. this reading made my friday morning! I wonder why rj recordings aren’t on pennsound?

  2. Hi Dawn,

    Yeah, it’s a great recording! I actually am linking directly to PENNsound”s mp3 on this site. I bet that new RJ recordings will surface and that PENNsound will probably host them. There’s one that says it’s forthcoming on the RJ website that I linked to. I’m definitely looking forward to more recordings of him.
