Publisher's Summary

Bob talks with SiriusXM’s Pete Dominick, who just launched a new morning show. “Stand Up! with Pete Dominick” will air live weekday mornings from 6 to 9 Eastern on Indie, SiriusXM channel 104.

Then, today marks the 40th anniversary of the release of POWs from the Hanoi Hilton. Major General John Borling was held captive for six and a half years in Hanoi and like many of his fellow prisoners; it was poetry that saw him through his darkest days. In a new book, Taps on the Walls: Poems from the Hanoi Hilton, Borling shares his story and writes about the poems he mentally composed and kept memorized during his incarceration. Borling and the other POWs used a secret tap code to communicate their poetry to each other through the prisons thick walls. [Broadcast Date: February 12, 2013]
