As Read By The Author - Airs April 18th

Jack Kerouac Tuning-in
That's right, you angelheaded hipsters who listen to hydrogen jukeboxes, it's National Poetry Month!
We love poetry here in The Listening. Since I've been on board we've dedicated whole shows to Edgar Allen Poe, Gil Scott-Heron, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Allen Ginsberg and have sprinkled many poems in episodes between our features.
Well, to celebrate National Poetry Month this year we're going hear poems from National Book Award winner Robert Bly, Beat Generation
pioneer Jack Kerouac, Grammy winner Shel Silverstein, and Poet Laureate Billy Collins (and whoever else I can fit in) all read by the author. Tune-in Wednesday night at 6:30pm on 90.3fm
