Lying in a Hammock at
William Duffy's Farm in Pine
Dream of a Baseball Star
To Whom It
From: Steve Downing/Acting Producer/THE BEAT
Community Radio is pleased to announce the
launch of a new program in its Monday-Friday
Morning Show line-up: THE BEAT. Between 7:30
and 8:00, THE BEAT will feature a short poem
by a Minnesota poet (published or not, well
known or not). Three minutes is about the
time limit---shorter than that is fine, too.
If this interests you, email me a work
sample, and I'll follow up. If
reading/recording intimidates you but THE
BEAT idea is appealing, we have several
professional, poetry-hip readers around here
who will definitely do justice to your work.
Feel free to forward this to
whomever---anyone you think should know
about THE BEAT.
THE BEAT will
be airing on 91.7 KAXE (89.9/Brainerd) and
90.5 KBXE, on 150,000 watts of signal power,
meaning much of northern Minnesota will pick
it up, from Thief River Falls to Hermantown
poetry. Send us your best. Try to avoid the
temptations of religion and partisan
politics, and remember: the Federal
Communications Commission is listening.
There will be small stipends awarded to
writers whose work is accepted.
