by Gabe Bullard on May 15, 2009

Studio 619 airs Sunday mornings at ten on WFPL.

Listen to the show

Poetry Out Loud

A Kentucky high school student gives voice to poems and places second in a national competition called Poetry Out Loud.

Don Ray Smith

A book of Kentucky oriented humor is reaching store shelves this month. It’s written and put there by Don Ray Smith. The humorist has self-published a book of essays, articles, columns and poems. It’s called “Fell My Humerus.” That’s humerus as in the bone in the upper arm on humans.

Gabe Bullard sat down with Smith to talk about comedy, writing and the perks of self-publication.

Dwight Allentypewritersatyr

In his literary debut, The Green Suit, author Dwight Allen explored his hometown of Louisville in a series of interlocking stories. Now, he’s turned his attention to his current home in Madison Wisconsin in his latest novel, The Typewriter Satyr. The setting for The Typewriter Satyr is the fictional town of Midvale, Wisconsin, modeled off of Madison. But the characters that inhabit this town could be anywhere. With characters as familiar as your next door neighbors, Allen creates a world that is both comforting and unsettling. Join WFPL’s Robin Fisher as she talks with Allen about his latest novel, how characters develop and what it means to have a sense of place.

Pandora Productions

A local theater company stages two plays this month that recount how gays and one transvestite in Germany survived the Holocaust.
