During the month of June, Jack Foley will play interviews with listener poets who will each read a poem on his show. You will be surprised by the depth and variety of the work presented here. Some of these poets are seasoned veterans of the poetry skirmishes of the San Francisco Bay Area; others are unpublished or barely published hopefuls. All of them write with intelligence, awareness, and emotional conviction. Listener Poets concludes with well-known painter and closet poet Anthony Holdsworth reading a new poem and listener Paul Kameny reading loved work by his friend Dave Smith, with whom he lost contact some years ago.
