I Wish I'd Kept It
27 June 2014 | by (Marietta, GA) – See all my reviews

This aired back in the age of blank videotapes being $25 each--after taxes being taken out, over a day's pay for me. So my one $25 videotape was used for time-shifting only. I recorded this to watch later, but couldn't keep it. I regret it to this day. One solid hour of Richard Kiley reciting poetry. Just thinking about it gives me goosebumps. One of the poems, I recall, was a poem I'd never heard of, Theodore Spencer's "The Circus; or One View of It." I transcribed it before erasing the tape. Kiley so perfectly captured the carousel rhythm of the verses.

I can't imagine something like this being on now. It doesn't have enough "action."
