John Simopoulos: A Tiger Burning Bright
When we asked John Simopoulos, Founding Fellow and Dean of Degrees at St Catherine’s College, Oxford, to read Coleridge’s The Rime of the Ancient Mariner last year, we had an overwhelming response from listeners wanting to hear more from him.
We’re thrilled to welcome John back to present this special new year’s “mixed bag of prose, poetry and century” that is certain to delight and inspire you… happy new year!
John reads and discusses:
- Meditation 17 by John Donne
- “The Little Black Boy” by William Blake
- “The Tiger” by William Blake
- Samuel Johnson’s letter to Lord Chesterfield
- “Those Winter Sundays” By Robert Hayden
- “Heraclitus” by William Johnson Cory
- “On The Coast Of Coromandel” by Osbert Sitwell
- “The Owl And The Pussy Cat” by Edward Lear
Music in the programme is available for purchase from magnatune.com

We couldn’t do it without you, and that’s the truth. You really do keep us on the air.
If you value truly independent broadcasting – not beholden to special interest groups, the curse of political correctness or some nefarious media baron – then please support us now.
Here are our goals…
Goal #1: We Go Weekly!
We’d love to be with you more often than once a month. But every show needs a lot of time to prepare… Our first goal is to produce a top-quality show every week – please help us get there!
Goal #2: We Go Video!
Wouldn’t it be nice to see our guests? Video will add a new dimension to what we do (and yes, we’ll always have top-quality audio available, too).
Goal #3: We Go On The Road!
Help LAD get off our tushies and produce some of the best location shows you’ve ever heard. We can do it – with your help!
You can cancel at any time (but we hope you won’t!). And thank you – your kind patronage truly makes all the difference.
