I want to thank all of you who have responded to my initial call for submissions of recorded poetry. What you have sent me has exceeded expectations. All of the poems are wonderful and all will be used, though not all of them will be on the first show. I should be able to let you know soon which ones will be used on this Sunday's show.
Please check my weblog, http://poetrypostcardproject.com/blog/MGRH.html, for program information and announcements. I imagine I will have a tentative program posted by tomorrow afternoon. Since this will be the first show, don't expect everything to go as planned.
Having thanked you for what you've already so generously provided, let me now ask you for a second favor:
James and I will be dedicating the first hour of this first show to Robert Creeley, and will be playing some of Creeley's recorded readings. I hope you'll tune in -- 4-6pm (PST) Sunday -- by clicking on the following link and choosing your connection speed:
We'd like you to help us with this memorial. If you have written any elegies for Creeley, or would like to pay tribute to him in some other way (such as by reading your favorite Creeley poem on the air), please let me know. You can send me an mp3, or we can use the telephone. We will actually have to pre-record your reading over the telephone (there is no phone in the studio for some reason), so please send me an email if you are interested and we will set up a time to record your tribute. Please let me know by email as soon as possible.
In the second half of the show we will be playing some of the truly wonderful recordings we received in response to our first call for recorded poetry submissions. Thank you again for your support.
