An Anthology of New York Poets

Co-hosts Blagg & O'Brien turned their focus on a single tome for this broadcast: the classic compilation, An Anthology of New York Poets, published by Vintage in 1970, and containing the cream of the New York School. Concentrating on the less well known stars of this poetic firmament, Click & Clack tossed the book back and forth and aired out random works by Frank Lima, Jim Brodey, Tom Clark, Dick Gallup, Kenward Elmslie and Lewis McAdams, all of whom held up very well 35 years on.


Bald Ego Online


The late arts writer Glenn O'Brien and poet Max Blagg hosted the Bald Ego Online series from 2005-2006, featuring Duncan Hannah, Ron Padgett, Anna Akhmatova, Donald Barthelme, an Anthology of New York Poets, and more. 
After O'Brien passed away in 2017, Clocktower re-introduced the series in remembrance of the writer's life in the New York art scene. He will be sorely missed.
