thanks to eduardo for giving me some help / advice in the last post…but where’s everyone else at? i need some more ideas for where to submit these reviews…please dont make me beg (because i will!)
take a listen to one of my favorite radio programs: Apex Express on Berkeley based KPFA. Apex focuses on Asian & Pacific Islander issues–i was on Apex sometime last year. anyhoo, there was a fantastic show on Aug 6, 2009–the anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing.
the show focused on nuclear bombing & its consequences in the Pacific–talking with Marshallese poet Kathy Jetnil and Chamoru scholar Migetu Tuncap.
then, the show turns to the Asian Pacific Islander American Poetry and Spoken Word Summit, which i mentioned a few posts below (i gave a workshop). the representatives from the Summit discuss its history and then share some of their poems in the second half of the show.
in all, the show is about an hour long…but well worth the listening–dig it here.
