Underlit Radio GOES TO AIR Well, this is all pretty darned exciting!Underlit Radio GOES TO AIR by salshep
salshep and skufti are the presenters of this first Underlit broadcast, which will go to air at 3pm EST, today, the 24th Feb.
Along with Sal and Heidas rivetting discussion on poetry, writers block and Jim Careys behind, theyll be reading poetry by E.E. Cummings, Dylan Thomas, Charles Bukowksi and Pablo Neruda, as well as a marvellous poem by our own bewareofthesnowman.
Theres a few other special features, too, including a reading of one of Dylan Thomas love letters by Adeimantus and the first of our Weekly Literature News updates presented by our roving reporter, mossi-mo.
Right now we can shoutcast to around 200 people at once (we are hoping to expand that number soon ) and of course podcast is available to all.
The text to all pieces read is available here, on the program schedule page.
