Philip Dodd is joined by Scottish poet and musician Don Paterson as his Selected Poems are published, drawing upon 20 years of his work. In an extended conversation, Paterson discusses poetry as a secular prayer, his passion for the sonnets of Shakespeare and Rilke, and his reasons for preferring Satie to Mozart.

That's on Night Waves tonight at 10pm.
