WGBH/PRI: Sound & Spirit: Neil Gaiman talking about Sandman

SFFaudio Online Audio

Sound & SpiritWGBH/PRI’s Sound & Spirit was a music show, by Ellen Kushner.

Now I’m not much for music, and many people think I’m all wet on the subject, but a chance to hear the great Neil Gaiman talking about The Sandman again is worth me doing a little wading.

The Gaiman content begins shortly after the 32 minute mark. There’s also a nice bit of Gilbert & Sullivan near the end. Here’s the official description:

Prophecies, solutions to pressing problems, windows to the soul… Dreams are wellsprings of creativity, a place where our life and the shadowlands meet. Join Ellen Kushner for a conversation with the Sandman graphic novel author Neil Gaiman; and hear music written about or even received in dreams by Alan Hovhaness, David Maslanka (based on work of Carl Jung) and world artists from Hawaii to Australia.

  1. Neil did a wonderful interview, as always! And tell the truth – you liked the music, didn’t you? ;) That was a very fun show to do. Leavening all that world myth and sound with Gaiman’s “Sandman” I thought was the perfect way to go. Very glad you found us.
    There are other Sound & Spirit programs featuring interviews with contemporary fantasists: Jane Yolen on “Fairy Tales” and Terri Windling on “Surviving Survival” – and Michael Swanwick on “The Lord of the Rings!” Enjoy.
