Barry Award!

Tonight I laughed with John Stiles, loved the serious Rexroth poem, and Barry Award was such a surprise—Tristis, the Station Manager came in when I was about to go on air. Gave me the Barry Award pictured below:
Best Spoken Word Show
Ashes Paper and Beans
I had asked the Program Manager to give the jury the CD of a submitted show sometime way back when—the episode with the Lynn Davies live & Beth Powning recorded interviews.

The Barry Awards presentation was last month on 18 Feb & I didn't get to it. That was the weekend of the frigid Arctic air blob overhead and in town with extreme winds and windchill and I was wearing fleece-lined pants+ longjohns and everything else.

Never heard a thing about any of the winners (and I'd been to the station during office hours last week).

Surprise :-)

It's my third Barry Award in the 11 years of doing this show. Had received a Barry Award for Best Spoken Word Show before (1996) and an even more surprising Favourite Interviewer of 1999-2000.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
