What. This is a general call for vocal talent auditions and production volunteers. We’ll be recording public domain poetry. Our goal is to create a internet radio broadcast devoted to poetry. This will be available to tune in on 24⁄7. This is a volunteer project and all poetic recordings that make the cut will be posted for free listening as a verkaro.net internet radio broadcast and at verkaro.
A friend I trust to speak his mind said “Maybe there’s good reason why there’s no radio station dedicated to poetry on air.” I smiled and outlined my reasoning in support of the idea but if I may paraphrase something from Don Marquis: Publishing poetry is like dropping a feather into the Grand Canyon and waiting to hear it hit. As an annoying young man, I had once said this very thing to a friend who wrote poetry for much of his life.
