There’s a brand new selection of tracks now playing in The Loop on Radio Wildfire – playing 24/7, a selection of stories, satires, poetry, spoken word, music and interview @ http://www.radiowildfire.com – another continuous Loop of live literature and chat.
There’s Words with music and soundscape from Lee Foust, Florence; Andrew Barnes, UK; Mark Goodwin, UK; and from David Michael Jackson, USA, and his Artvilla recording label featuring a poem by Janet Kuypers, vocals by Esteban Colon.
Unaccompanied poems packed with emotion and beautiful imagery from Sharon Ashton
An interview with Michael Myshack talking about his blog for all things connected with poetry and sound Poetry and Other Sounds, a place for the spoken word poetry community to gather and discuss.
This month the Bunbury Banter Theatre Company give us a haunting story of obsession, and the past coming back to confront us, in The Gentlemen’s Agreement by Jonathan Bridle.
… and there are tracks recorded live at this year’s Ledbury Poetry Festival, including an extract from J.O.Morgan’s contemporary riff on an epic Old English poem At Maldon, a superb feat of fireside storytelling weaving modern imagery with a historic tale of warfare;
… and the dawn reading which rounded off Ledbury Poetry Festival’s all-night Insomnia poetry workshop held outdoors in the grounds of Hellens manor.
… plus, from the Radio Wildfire Archive a song from Alex Vann and a satirical look at the Farming Diary from Tony Judge.
