Klassical Korner

The Click and Clack of art-radio poesy, Max Blagg and Glenn O'Brien, take to their Klassical Korner for a thrilling play-by-play of Homer's current sales rank, spiking their repartee with a reading from Robert Graves's Iliad, plus a new Horace and a sudden but inspired New York School moment featuring the late Joe Ceravolo and seasonal poems by James Schuyler.

Rediscover Homer and Horace (newly translated by David Ferry) and their New York School heirs, James Schuyler and Ron Padgett , r.i.p., as hosts Max Blagg and Glenn O'Brien continue to serve their large and highly subjective delectation of poets lost and found. Also in this edition: d.a. levy, Joe Ceravolo and Richard Brautigan.


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.
