Last year I made the claim that poetry is for everyone, especially radio lovers and I stand by that! This year I wanted to dig a little deeper and see what poets were doing with audio, whether it be podcasts, broadcast programs or archival audio footage. There’s so much amazing poetry to listen to on the web, here are some of my favorites.


The Gift
- Imagination is the seed of empathy – a centrally important function – and both the gift and burden of the writer, argues Kwame Dawes in The Gift from WBEZ.


What is Poetry?
- One of my all-time favorite pieces on PRX is this Carl Sandburg remix produced by Barrett Golding called “What is Poetry?”


State of the Re:Union Poetry Month Special
- Host Al Letson tells his personal stories of how poetry influenced his life and features some incredible slam poets from around the country.


Woodberry Poetry Room Recordings

- The Woodberry Poetry Room at Harvard contains a landmark collection of poetry readings that have taken place at Harvard. You can listen online to many of them. Here are a few of my favorites:

- John Berryman, 1962, The Dream Songs

- Ezra Pound, 1939, The Cantos

- Amiri Baraka, 2013, Somebody Blew Up America

- Alice Notley, 2013, I Went Down There


Video Poems

- “On the Other Hand” by Lanny Jordan Jackson.

- Allen Ginsberg’s “Father Death Blues.”



Podcasts

- Voicemail Poems podcast:

- Poetry and club jams unite. Listen to the Pretty LIT podcast and read my interview with the producer, B.J. Love.

Coming soon from The WFMT Radio network, a new series called Studs Terkel in Conversation with American Poets.

Celebrate National Poetry Month with a trio of short radio programs featuring some of America’s greatest 20th century poets in conversation with Studs Terkel. These programs explore how poetry channels voices from the past, propels fantastic voyages and dives deep into memory, childhood and the wild “backyards” of life. Robert Polito, president of the Poetry Foundation, guides this tour which features excerpts from Terkel’s archival talks with Allen Ginsberg, Gwendolyn Brooks, James Baldwin, Howard Nemerov, Elma Stuckey and John Ciardi.

They’ll be posted here for listening and purchasing later this week!
