Customer Reviews

Gentle, charming and a joy

These daily podcasts highlight literary anniversaries and Keilor's warm appreciative voice provides some useful background to authors as diverse as Ulysses S Grant, Joseph Heller and James Joyce. They are brief, but nonetheless delightful. He finishes with a pithy poem and the exhortation to 'Be well, do good work and keep in touch'. It is likely to put a spring in your step at the start of each day.


This podcast is the most therapeutic I listen to. Wonderful facts and a lovely reading voice and interpretation. Would love to be able to access past poems. Can't trace recently read "On the back porch" by Dorian Lowe?
