William Wordsworth, born in the Lake District of England on April 7, 1770, was inspired by Nature’s beauty and helped begin the Romantic age in English literature. Gavin and Wyatt, the dogs, share Wordsworth’s love for a spontaneous expression of feeling in life while John, the host, shares a regard for a planned communication of music in radio. You can join the Romantic movement by listening to the Wordsworth birthday party on Crosscurrents, 4/7 at 8 a.m.
