Heh, I was just going to post a link to the BBC Radio 4 version read by Rhys Ifans to be broadcast this evening (and then available for 7 days).

Thank you. I've read this to my children every year of their lives.

There is no way - no way - that i am letting this opportunity pass. Here is Dylan Thomas reading Do Not Go Gently Into That Good Night, a recording that i painfully and carefully snatched from the barren claws of DRM.

Thanks Brandon. Wonderful.

Our neighbors at the next table in the restaurant last night and us fell into a conversation about how Dylan Thomas' A Child's Christmas in Wales is a great work of art. Our erudite Pakistani waiter, also an Urdu poet, could quote most of the piece by heart.
