New shows on the archive ... and more!

The Laureate's Radio Hour rides again! Shows from October, November and December are now up on the Wordplay Archive. More details on these to follow, but here are the links:

October 17, 2010 featured Western North Carolina poet Jeannette Cabanis-Brewin;

November 21, 2010 had Cathy interviewing Charlotte writer James McGavran;

December 19, 2010 brought poet Susan Lefler to the studio for a preview of her upcoming book, Rendering the Bones, due soon from Wind Publications.


For most of the last week I've been fighting off something very like the flu, so yesterday, instead of spreading the contagion, I decided to reedit and replay another Wordplay classic, a show from last January. It featured Catalyst Poetix' Graham Hackett, who since the show has gone on to become the new director of the Asheville Area Arts Council, which just celebrated its re-launch last Friday. Unfortunately, as I prepared to burn the show to CD, Windows Vista decided to go into a coma, and it took some 45 minutes and three reboots before the computer was functioning normally again, so I didn't make it to the studio till well into the show's timespot. Rather than play just part of the show, I made sure it uploaded to the stream server. My apologies if you tuned in to listen live. I'm sure the music was good, but ...

Here's where you'll find the new-old show featuring Graham Hackett. Congratulations to Graham on his new gig, and congratulations, too, to the Arts Council on the opening of The Artery.
