Knoxville: Summer of 1995

Here's an audio homage on three levels: first, to James Agee's poetic memoir of the sounds and smells of Knoxville, Tennessee in the summer of 1915, shortly before his father died; secondly, to Samuel Barber's 1947 orchestral setting of Agee's text for the soprano Eleanor Steber; and finally to the modern city of Knoxville.

This hour: letters. To yourself, to your city, lost letters, found letters... and a love letter to letters.
