The Beat in Northern Minnesota


Tomorrow morning, between 7:30 and 8:00, the NPR station for northern Minnesota, KAXE, will be featuring my poem, "The Goat Man," on their program, The Beat. Here is a link to their page where you can live stream it on your computer at that time or check out the archives where it will be added after a day or two:

They will be featuring other poems, as well. I will give you a head's up when I know the dates.

Here is the post containing the poem:

    1. Yes, I read the poems myself, record and email to them ... I'll probably put up the archives again when other poems are featured.

  5. It's wonderful that your poetry is being given to a wider audience. :) And what an awesome alternative to the usual radio drivel.

    Congrats Teresa (well-deserved). May many people be blessed by the beauty of your writing.

  6. Teresa, I am so thrilled for you, and for the airing of "The Goat Man" on Thanksgiving morn. I have a note here by the computer, and one by my alarm, in hopes of hearing it in the morning. If I don't get to here it, however, I will definitely check the link/archives later. Well done!

    2. I finally had a few moments to indulge, Teresa, and indulge, I did with your clear voice a song and your words musical notes. Wonderful! I listened, several times, for there is more to hear each time. I always feel poetry is better, more alive, when spoken. I enjoyed a few other poems as well.

      I enjoy public radio here near Chicago, but . . . we don't have the more local type of programming, such as The Beat, that you have in MN or the programming in WI. I yearn for this. Thank you, dear one, for sharing your voice, as well as this programming.
