Talking about Love, Loss and Dogs on Soundart Radio

This blog - more specifically, the post about the death of my dog, Ted, a month ago - recently came to the attention of Julie Mullen, who hosts a show on Soundart Radio, based in Totnes, Devon. She asked me to record myself reading from it for the Monday edition, and so that's what I did. It's by far the hardest thing I've ever had to do in the name of poetry, but that's love for you. You can listen to it here.  

My contribution starts about 12 minutes in and runs intermittently right to the end of the podcast, but I strongly suggest you start at the very beginning. Apart from it being a very good place to start, the playlist features John Lennon, the Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Gilbert O'Sullivan, and Julie herself, so it's really not a hardship.
