Anyone who missed the Low Ghost radio show last week featuring Angele Ellis, Jerome Crooks, Bob Pajich, Taylor Grieshober, Scott Silsbe, Margaret Bashaar, myself, and host Holly Coleman can hear it here:
Hey, guess what! They let me be on Prosody. Crazy, right? Anyway, you can listen in tonight at 7pm on 91.3 WYEP on the FM dial to hear what kind of silly things I said about poetry n'at. And yeah, I read a few of your favorites from my vast oeuvre (assuming, that is, you have favorites from my vast oeuvre of nonsense). Thanks to the wonderful Renee Alberts for inviting me on the show and hosting as I nervously stumble through her questions. Honestly, it's almost like I never actually think about how or why I write these things. You can also stream the show at www.wyep.org
And if that wasn't enough, tune in to 88.3 WRCT on the ol' FM tomorrow night, Thursday March 31st, as Low Ghost Press takes over A Live Show, produced by Jason Baldinger. An amazing group of poets will be joining me to read poems of love, sex, and other bodily notions. Featured poesy slingers include Scott Silsbe, Angele Ellis, Bob, Pajich, Jerome Crooks, Taylor Grieshober, Margaret Bashaar, and our conductor/DJ for the evening, Holly Coleman. Place bets on which one of us makes Jason use the delay button first! You can also stream this live at www.wrct.org
Join us for the kick off event for the TNY Presents 2011 season at ModernFormations Gallery on February 2nd. Readers will include Alan Jude Moore, Michael S. Begnal, Ellen McGrath Smith, and Kevin Finn! More info at TNY Presents
