Last night's program didn't go exactly as planned. The Qwerty lads no-showed for the second half so I, on the spot, inserted the cassette recording of last Monday's reading on campus and listened to it on the cue speaker until I could put it "on air" at an appropriate point in Leckie's introduction of poet Ken Babstock. Timing-wise, his reading worked well instead of the live interview.
The show that happened:
¤ "Sometimes I Think" by Montreal poet Fortner Anderson.
¤ "Ode To Commemorate the World Burns Federation's First Summer School, July 2003" by Scottish poet Hamish MacDonald.
¤ "poems" by rob mclennan (from an Ottawa Poetry Podcast).
¤ "Dad and the Fridge Box" by Newfoundland poet Agnes Walsh (Brick Books).
¤ Ken Babstock reading from Airstream Land Yacht (House of Anansi Press Inc.) w/ a reading introduction by Ross Leckie (19 March 2007).
¤ Fredericton readings news, by Joe Blades.
¤ "Husk" by poet James Deahl, music by D.C. Fitzgerald.
