For the week of April 28, 2006.
“Because things are the way they are, things will not stay the way they are.” – Bertolt Brecht
This week on From the Vault, we look at Bertolt Brecht in Germany, in America, at the height of his career, and at the lowest point of his life. Using sounds from nearly 70 hours of programs on Brecht in the Pacifica Radio Archives, we hear Bertolt Brecht From the Vault: Remixed.
Eric Bentley is unanimously considered the premiere expert on Brecht in the world. On From the Vault: Remembered, Bentley shares some of his personal insight into the man, as well his personal recollections from a long and productive friendship.
