An Indirect Tribute to Sen. Edward M. Kennedy. This show features Jack reading San Francisco Irish-American writer John Norton’s assessment of the late senator’s importance to both Norton personally and to Irish Americans as a whole. Other voices are also presented in this potpourri of attempts to define Irishness and to engage in the struggle to understand the Irish not as “immigrants” but as “Americans.” Adelle Foley reads Marianne Moore’s poem, “Spenser’s Ireland.”
