On the 3/22/23 edition of Dr. Andy’s Poetry and Technology Hour:
Former Poet Laureate of Sacramento Bob Stanley tells us about local poetry happenings, Random Lane Press, and Bob’s Poetry Seminars, and then shares two poems that get by with a little help from the Beatles. Poet and radio host Charles Perrone shares thoughts on French existentialism, being surprised by his poetry, having an online presence, his radio and translation work, and more.
Bob Stanley has written poetry and organized poetry events in Northern California since the 1970s. He served as Poet Laureate of Sacramento from 2009 to 2012. He and his wife Joyce live in the Arden area of Sacramento County where Bob runs Random Lane Press.
Charles A. Perrone works with music, radio, translation, university-press commissions, and poetry. His oddball lyric lives at moriapoetry.com (chapbooks) and at https://caperrone4.wixsite.com/ca-perrone-wix. He recently published the volume Designs: Blueprints of Floorplans of a Provisional Residence (cyberwit, 2022).
Maya Khosla and Lisa Dominguez Abraham will read at the Poetry Night Reading Series on April 6th.
