What's up

I can't believe it's been two and half months since we last checked in and said hello.

Poetry month was super busy.  RC was away in Banff for a week at the Banff Centre for the Arts and the Spoken Word program created by Sheri-D Wilson.

The 2nd annual BC Youth Poetry Slam Championships aka Hullabaloo took place with South Delta Secondary coming out on top.  We had one of the featured poets of the festival, Mary Pinkoski on as our guests.

The next week Sean McGarragle and Sonya Littlejohn joined us to promote the Vancouver International Poetry Festival and Charles Hamilton joined RC in studio the following week to also talk about the festival and share some poems.

The month wrapped up with us digging in to the CD Tickle Trunk and playing some tracks from Jamie DeWolf, Janet Rogers and Shauntay Grant. 

The next two weeks of May are booked with Billeh Nickerson coming on the show May 9th and Heidi Greco joining us on the 16th.  We also have Bill Bissett confirmed for later in the summer as well as Sylvia Taylor.

Also congrats to Pam on getting her new job which allows for some cash flow and for her to still be part of the broadcasts.  And congrats to RC Weslowski for winning the Canadian Individual Poetry Slam Championships at VIP.

As always are shows are archived online at http://www.coopradio.org/ and you can downloads podcasts for free on Itunes under WaxPoetic Radio.
