For this week's Roaming and Reading, we travel to Wales with Jeff Towns, known as "The Dylan Thomas Guy."

Towns has dedicated himself to keeping the poet's legacy alive. Thomas was born almost 100 years ago in Wales and was known for his highly lyrical and emotionally charged poems.

Towns, a bookseller in Swansea, even assisted Andrew Lycett with his 2003 Dylan Thomas biography, "Dylan Thomas: A New Life."

He joins The Daily Circuit to discuss Thomas.
