Is This Too Racy For Radio?

spark_20120615_Harry Crews_with_David_Jeffrey_vintage.jpg

The story includes a reading of a passage from a book by author/skull-tattooed-guy/rascal/genius Harry Crews --a scene where a 12-year-old boy discovers both nudity and God at the same event.  We talk with David Jeffrey, the self-appointed one-person Society for the Preservation of the Writings of the Late (and Great) Harry Crews.   David, the Crews fan who hopes to lift the writer out of obscurity, is the Dean of Arts and Letters at JMU.
