First Day as Assistant Youth Advocate!


Today went suprisingly smoother than anticipated! Some talented youngsters from the Young Ladies Radio Project came down to the station to interview people from the community about Food and Food in Emergencies. Two of the ladies went for a stroll to aquire more audio for a vox pop.

I can't wait to hear the finished interviews that these ladies create! They interviewed this guy from the City of Portland who helps coordinate stuff in emergency situations- he was really animated and full of fascinating information. Before we started recording he made a comment that the Government doesn't help people- thats not what it does and thats not what it was ever meant to do. I'm a little disappointed that we don't have that recorded :)

21--NEWS--Franklin Rosemont, Surrealist Author, Artist and Activist, 1943-2009

Hi there,

Friend Joanne Oleksiak sent this in and I thought I should share it with everyone.






Here is the promised collection of notes for NOTEBOOK OF A RETURN TO THE NATIVE LAND which should assist you in understanding some of the words and phrases and names which are unfamiliar.



Hi gang,

Putting out this script of Cesaire's amazing poem which I recommend strongly that you read.  But just a few lines in and you will realize that this poem requires a black voice(s) with perhaps some black musicians adding accompaniment.

I am in the process of trying to track down a black male (or mixed-sex black voices w/male lead) who hopefully knows some musicians with whom he would be comfortable working.  But if any of you out there know of possible prospects please reach out.  I very much want to have this on the show.  It bites down hard!

18--TEXT--Oliverio Girondo Poetry #1 CLAIMED by Tabor Porter & possibly J

Hi gang,

Tabor Porter has asked to take on the Girondo Poetry.  I also received a later email from J also asking to do them.  So let's consider this batch of poems to be already taken.  It is nice to have you folks snapping these scripts up as fast as I can churn them out.  Thanks.




Back at kicking out scripts of poetry, prose readings, plays and such.  More to come as I'd like to establish a nice pile of scripts to work on through the next few years.

Girondo was from Argentina and did most of his writing in the 1920s.  These are some short poems which should be great fun for someone.  I'm half-tempted to play with them myself but I'll freely throw them out there first as I have plenty I really want to do, including more by Girondo.


16--CALL--Do you know an audio-aware person in Minneapolis/St. Paul area???

Hi Gang,

I am trying to get a recording of Jack Zipes performing a reading from his new translation of merz fairy tales by Kurt Schwitters.  Jack has already checked with Minnesota Public Radio and they want to charge him more than he or his publicist can afford.
