The Poetry Show: FRIENDS, followed by Stairwell Books Presents: A NEW DAWN for The Poetry Show!

This coming Monday on The Poetry Show: FRIENDS, followed by Stairwell Books Presents: A NEW DAWN for The Poetry Show! plus news about launch events.

The Poetry Show is about poems for everyone: it’s not that stuff you learned in school. This is a podcast that aims to bring poems and poetic discussion to people who love poetry, to those of you who just aren’t all that sure, and to poetry novices…and maybe we can inspire you to try a poem for yourself. A word of warning: we might use a coupla edgy words. We’re kinda PG 13.

Every week, we will discuss a theme, and look at how four very different poets work with the theme to create a poem… Hopefully something for everyone! So we’ll each do a poem, and we’ll chat about that poem and move on to the next.

This episode has Rose, Alan, Becca Miles and special guest Kit Marshall! Today’s show is hopeful and positive. It’s about FRIENDS.

Is this where I break into James Taylor? Don’t we all need friends? Do YOU need friends? Or are they a necessary evil?

Are you the life of the party, or the one hunched over in the corner, talking to the house cat?

Do you have 5,972 close Facebook friends? or are you happily alone?

What does the word ‘FRIEND’ mean to you?

My poems about ‘friends’ were mostly written ages ago, so these are short, old poems. Kind of like me. Tune in to hear what Becca, Alan and Kit have to say about Friends.

* ~ * ~ *

Following our broadcast of S2.1 “Friends”, Alan, Rose and Becca will chat about Big Poetry Show news (Yay!!), Staxtonbury, and upcoming launches. Launch events include David Lee Morgan’s music and poetry event in Sheffield on May 17 at DINA Café, with, first, his visit on May 16 to York open mic BeSpeak (Black Swan, 7.30pm, free). Check out David poeticizing here:

The Poetry Show Season 1 Ep 30: History Rewritten, and Stairwell Books Present: Bob Horton.

“Bob is on the Left”

First up, a playback of a show w Laurence O’Reilly and guest Tanya Parker: History Rewritten! Or, Tory Policy heh. Then we’ll chat with Bob Horton, scientist and poet, about his thoughts on society, history, science, poetry, and so on. I’ll also promote the upcoming Poetry For All event, this Saturday, March 24, at St Clements Hall, presented as part of the York Lit Fest.

Monday’s podcast is S1.30, and is HISTORY, the redux.
Yes, we covered history a little while ago with guest STEVE NASH, [and Two Rivers guest that same day!] but after all, history is constantly being rewritten. And if we don’t remember history, we are doomed to REPEAT IT.
or, if we don’t like it, we can just REDO it. Hence Trumpsky claims his inauguration was the BIGGEST ONE EVER (despite photographic evidence to the contrary)
And, your memories are someone else’s ancient history.
We were at an event recently, took place in a grammar school and students were working as assistants. As usual, I’m talking about politics: Trumpsky, war, angry people trying to solve things with violence, etc. I was talking to several thoughtful young people. “Well” I finally said, “you know, after 9/11…” and she blinked at me. “I was 1 when that happened.” “One?” I repeated weakly. “You’ve always known only a state of war”. “True, but that means I don’t fear it.” HER history starts about two thirds of the way into mine. And at least I’m still here to discuss the past! What happens when it’s not 15 yrs from now, but 115?

And then, there’s Bob.
We promise not to argue about GMOs. Heheh

Job Share and Tom Dixon. The Poetry Show and Stairwell Books Presents:

On The Poetry Show episode (1pm ’til 2pm) , Job Share, we have the original crew of Charli, Laurence, Alan and me, but also with guest Lucy Furlong up from London.  So the ep was a job share too. If I recall it was a seat share too!  The recording studio at Eden Agency is a small space with four chairs, but we somehow fitted five of us in the room.

Job sharing is popular among parents of tiny kids. Back in the 1990s, job sharing became a feminist issue, a way for women to keep a foot in the job market and yet still have a life. Sort of.  Tiny babies are HARD WORK!  When I first had my baby, I had dreams: I was gonna learn sign language, maybe brush up on my French….. and I was grateful when I managed to get dressed and clean my teeth the same day.  I then went back full time and it was hard.

Then, following the Poetry Show episode, we have Tom Dixon joining us on Stairwell Books Presents:

Tom has a book out this summer called ON SUICIDE BRIDGE and Tom will talk to us about the inspiration for the book.  The featured picture above is of Tom at the Spoken Word, December 2016. No, the people gazing down at the floor aren’t praying, they’re listening intently. That was a very packed night!
