Punk Poets

This show is divided into a variety of sections. First, I have an episode about technical difficulties. My apologies to the staff at the station for making my grievances public.

Next, I air my interview with Lydia Lunch. I found it! I thought it was recorded over, but alas, it was deep inside my MP3 player.

I interviewed Lydia prior to her performance at the Make-Out Room in San Francisco last November. I got the opening slot, and performed my poetry with Steve Mackay of the Stooges and Marlon Kasberg (Liquorball, American Waste, etc.).

I was able to tell my heroine how she inspired me to be a writer and performer, and she in turn let me know how much she enjoyed my performance. What an incredible night!!

The Labyrinth of the Lady Monster curves around to a live appearance by the local writer and poet, William Taylor, Jr. He has a new book on Centennial Press, Words For Songs Never Written. William is a sensitive Bukowski. All of his booze and grit and passion wrapped in a warm blanket. Come cuddle up, and sit near his fire.

William reads some of his poetry and plays music that inspires him.
Come to Dog-Eared Books on Thursday, February 12 to hear him read from the new book.

And, to top off the show, I attended the CRASS session at the Hypnodrome Theater hosted by V. Vale of RE/Search Publications. I made some recordings of one of Penny Rimbaud's performance that night. He performed two - 80 minute sessions with saxophonist/flutist Louise Elliott. This is an exclusive broadcast.
