Oops ...

Technical issues today, and the automation system that usually records the show got only twenty minutes of it before it croaked for reasons unknown. I'll try to get in to the station tomorrow to add ten more minutes of something; the first twenty minutes have Laura and me talking about Robert Bly's reading and workshop last week, so a few more Bly poems would seem to be in order. If you stream or download the show before Tuesday, you'll get the abbreviated version, so check back later in the week.

Tables Turned

As a WordPlay host I've interviewed a score or more of poets for the program. Last Sunday, though, found me on the other side of the console, interviewed myself by co-hosts Laura Hope-Gill and Sebastian Matthews. The program includes readings of several poems from my book NatureS, including the serial set "Strata: Rhododendron". The show’s still available via streaming or podcast from the archive page.

This Sunday’s show will feature a reading by Oregon poet Matthew Dickman; it was recorded last month at Warren Wilson College by WordPlay team-member Dylan Flynn. Tune in at 4:00 for his warm and genial presentation of his work.
