Rin Tin Tin was born one second after midnight in the year 1900 and died one second before that same hour in the year 1999. Lover of Billy Holiday, revolutionary, the greatest Hamlet of the last century, a guitarist to rival Django and Segovia, poet, and assassin Rinty died at the Pound in Brighton Beach unknown except for a young Samoan attendant who recorded his last song and has recently sent that recording to us. Rinty's last book of poetry "The Dark Bark" is available from Owl Oak Press. This special episode is hosted by Tu Mani Martini and includes "Sailor Dreams" by Tim Smith and Rinty's Poem "Boulez, Bloch, Maurice Revel." Rinty currently resides on a houseboat on the Styx which he shares with Roger Maris and Catullus. Rinty's interview with Orson Welles as the two sailed down that river is available here. http://p072.ezboard.com/ftheforbiddenstoryfrm63 The complete "The Dark Bark" will be broadcast this Spring.
