Radio slam

April 25, 2010

Because it’s National Poetry Month, Steve Scher and the team at KUOW’s Weekday brought us last week a radio poetry slam.

Learn why there is no “slam poetry”, and marvel at the fact that there is a Seattle National Poetry Slam Team.

I should mention that the 2010 Seattle Grand Slam is tonight, at Town Hall. Not like that means much to y’all down south, but, you know, it would be pretty silly if I didn’t say anything.

But, yeah. Cliff Mass is featured in a later segment, but that means even less to you than a Seattle poetry slam that I won’t be covering in any first-person context because it’s just not going to work out.

But I’ll see what I can come up with for results. Later. You know. Because it hasn’t happened yet.

Right. Yeah. You know. Later. We down? Cool, we down. A’ight.
