Love this podcast so much

Kenneth is amazing. He is so knowledgeable of the subject. He presents incredibly interesting audio clips and does a good job at not letting things drag too long. I listen to this podcast in its entirety just about every year. I really wish they made new episodes :(

No more episodes kuz Kenny G. died... inside

I wish I could hear more of this. I’ve listed to every episode at least two or three times. Amazing archival work, some of the best avant- garden poetry anywhere. Kenny G. Needs to find his smile and begins posting again.
