UVSC prof brings poetry to the airwaves

UVSC's only Artist-in-Residence Alex Caldiero has been co-hosting a monthly radio show devoted to poetry for almost a year now. He recently sent out this press release about the latest upcoming show:


August 16th, 10:30-11:00 am on KCPW Radio 88.3 FM

Join Poetry Is Wanted here hosts, word sonosopher Alex Caldiero &
bookman Ken Sanders, along with producer Lara Jones for a new
installment of their monthly poetry show on KCPW radio.

We will be tackling the subject of poetry that transports the listener
to other times and places and using three poems and three places to
evoke this theme. First up, Ken Lara and Alex will all read and discuss
Vachel Lindsay's early 1900s poem "THE CONGO" which is a poem that
begs to be read aloud. Boomlay! Boomlay! Boomlay! BOOM!

Next up is..."In Xanadu did Kubla Khan a stately pleasure dome
decree" ie Samuel Taylor Coleridge's masterpiece KUBLA KHAN. A
powerful poem excerpted from Leslie Marmon Silko's CEREMONY will
follow, and if enough time remains, well, we'll always have more poetry.

POETRY IS WANTED HERE can be heard the third Thursday of every month,
from 10:30 to 11:00 am on KCPW RADIO 88.3 FM. Upcoming shows air:

September 20th
October 18th ( a special Halloween show)
November 15th
December 20th (winter solstice show)

Join us for a monthly dose of provocative and thought provoking poetry.
