The first 10 minute ‘taster’ episode featuring PLS trustee Kyra Piperides-Jacques was released in November paving the way for the official launch date of 2nd December 2019. This date was chosen as the anniversary of Larkin’s death and also to mark the 25th year of the PLS itself. The opening episode features chair Professor Eddie Dawes who tells us some of his funny and fascinating stories about his friendship with Larkin.
This is followed by the two podcasts featuring Professor James Booth with his insights into Larkin’s life, relationships and poetic development that have already been very warmly received by listeners and Twitter followers. The most recent release is a chat with Wes Finch of The Mechanicals who discusses his Coventry roots and his musical settings of Larkin’s poetry. Coming up, we have more James Booth plus discussions with poet Keiron Winn, PLS merchandise officer and teacher Rachael Galletly and PLS trustee and Larkin researcher Philip Pullen.
