Since the fall of 2001 "THE SPOKEN WORD"
has put on some of the city's most consistently engaging literary programming, often focusing on local authors and unheralded luminaries outside the narrow scope of New York literati. Highlights of the past year included a celebration of Poetry
magazine, a remembrance of the life of James Kilgo and a truly mesmerizing appearance by poet Nikki Giovanni. No wonder the series, broadcast locally on WABE, is gearing up for syndication and will air throughout the Southeast in the fall. Programming is sporadic, so check the website for upcoming broadcasts.
WABE-FM, 90.1. Every Tuesday at 7 p.m. beginning in October. www.radiosouth.net.
