Like iTunes for poetry recordings. But free!

If you haven't discovered PENNsound yet I suggest you take a gander right now. Co-directed by poet Charles Bernstein from the University of Pennsylvania, you can listen to a vast archive of recordings by contemporary poets and writers absolutely free. Started two years ago, PENNsound features more than 200 writers and more than 10,000 digital recordings, even including readings by iconic poets and writers like Gertrude Stein, Guillaume Apollinaire, HD, William Carlos Williams, Ezra Pound, Allen Ginsberg, and many more. I'm also happy that experimental Canadian poets are well represented here, with recordings by Christian Bok, Nicole Brossard, the Four Horsemen, bp Nichol, Darren Wershler-Henry, and Angela Rawlings.
