How cool! What an intriguing way to learn about new poets, and sample their craft.

Really really great. I passed it on to a lit teacher friend and she is going to play some good stuff for her class, while she squeals exhortations to let the goooood soulful poetry come OUT. As is her wont. Thanks!

Glad you all liked it. I thought it was cool. (I discovered it while researching another post I'm working on.)
