Check out August 31st’s episode of KX at One Laguna Radio’s Spoken Word / Spoken Song with Hosts John Gardiner, Poet, and Polina Hryn of Wet Puzzle Piece Productions, Artist/Writer and Promoter of THE ARTS in an episode, a bit political AND emotional with return guest, MAN OF THE ARTS, Terrell Washington Anansi, whose poems are spoken and sung by Terrell, and read by John. Also, an interesting and spirited discussion of the “topical” song/poem, popularized by many folk singers, as opposed to the confessional and/or ranting song/poem which seems to be more prevalent today.
John Gardiner reads poems by poets: James Doane, Victor Infante, Robert Peters, Lizzie Wann, and Gerald Locklin; all poems from “Incidental Buildings & Accidental Beauty,” an Anthology of Orange County/Long Beach Poets, published by Tebot Bach.
John also reads the song lyrics of “The Death of Emmitt Till,” by Bob Dylan, and “Changes,” by Phil Ochs.
