Poets Corner

Thought I would do a blog on my radio show.  I host a radio show once a month on 3CR.  It is part of the Brain Waves Program, and is called Poets Corner.  Brainwaves is a show about and for people with mental illness.  We hear stories of recovery, stories of struggle, funny stories, and sad stories.  The show  is sponsored by the Mental Illness Fellowship of Victoria.  Poets Corner is the poetry branch of the show.  We interview people with mental illness who are poets, about their life and work.  We hear their poems, and hear about their struggles.  We have interviewed Stu Hatton, Initially No, Maree Cowan amongst others.  My co-host is the poet and artist Graeme Doyle.  We really have a great re pore   We met during our training sessions, and got along famously. In fact, these training sessions, which were recorded as demos, have been nominated for the training award at the awards night for the Australian Association of Community Radio.  Let's see if we win!
