Schedule – 09/04/2018

Hello, you lovely people!!   Well, today, among some truly wonderful pieces of community radio – you may find one or two ‘Forrest Gump’ moments. “What could this mean?” we hear you chant in unison… what it means is that 3 hours of today’s schedule is unfilled an therefore may be anything. #chocolatebox

Things we will be doing include bringing you the latest news at midday, 3pm and at 6pm as well as the voices, thoughts and opinions of the community in which you live and work.

The Poetry Show & Stairwell Books presents…

What’ve You Been Reading??

A few years ago, when I was down in Winchester a lot, I went to an excellent poetry workshop organised by Matt West. We were all to bring poems along, but they could not be OUR poems: at all. Poems that we find meaningful, memorable and important reflect on us, on our way of looking at the world, as much as anything we may choose to write.

One of my favourite poets is Charles Rafferty, who is based in Connecticut, a small state to the east of New York. About 12 years ago, Charles was the featured poet at the amazing Bethel Wednesday Night Poetry Series, which met Every Single Week for about 15 years. Charles talks about important things but he has a wonderfully light touch, very reminiscent of Billy Collins. I’ll read “Staying in Love”, which is about obsession and control.

Followed by: Stairwell Books Presents: MORE Other people’s poems!

If I had had time in that episode, I’d have read Tim Clare’s “In the unlikely event you spot my face in the seething zombie horde”, which is sort of about surviving (or not) a zombie apocalypse but might really be about trust. On Monday, Alan and I will continue the theme set out in The Poetry Show S1:32, and read poems by others. Maybe send a few in!

Tune in here between 1-2pm to listen and find out more!
