New Wordplay V shows on the archive

Apologies for the long wait, but I'm finally getting new Wordplay Season V shows uploaded to the ibiblio archive:

January 10, 2010 featured Lucy Tobin, who explores a middle ground between lyric and narrative in her very interesting work. Music by Allison Kraus, the Mountain Goats, and Heretic Pride.

January 3, 2010 celebrated the publication of Thomas Rain Crowe's Blue Rose of Venice. The archiving system dropped part of the show, but what survived is worth a listen. Caleb Beissert sat in, and shared his translations of Neruda. An earlier note on the show is below, here.

November 15, 2009 brought Tryon poet Cathy Smith Bowers, long-time Poet-in-Residence at Queens University in Charlotte, into the studio to celebrate her birthday. We listened to George Jones, Nina Simone, and Leonard Cohen, and she read from her most recent volume, The Candle I Hold Up to See You.

More soon.


The kinks in the AshevilleFM archiving system now seem to have been worked out, and new shows upload automatically to the station stream server, and stay there for two weeks. Just go to the site's Programming page, and click on the link to the stream. This link should take you, for now, to Sunday's show with California poet Cecilia Woloch, which features music by Asheville's Janet Robbins. Enjoy!
