FROM THIS EPISODE

sparks.jpgA Bookworm music show!  First, Ron and Russell Mael of  Sparks introduce the new Bookworm theme songs — “Where Would We Be Without Books?” and “I Am a Bookworm” — and discuss their compositions. Then, Irish poet Paul Muldoon, whose most-recent book is Maggot, talks about rock lyrics and how they differ from poetry. We play the song he wrote with the late Warren Zevon (as sung by Bruce Springsteen) and hear a brand new lyric: “Julius Caesar was a People Person.”
