Out of Our Minds: Radio interview this Wednesday

This Wednesday, January 23, I will be the guest on FM 91.5 KKUP’s weekly poetry show, “Out of Our Minds,” hosted by J.P. Dancing Bear. The show will run from 8-9pm and will feature the two of us talking together about poetry and whatever else might cross our minds. I will  read poems throughout our conversation. I’m hoping to air some new pieces and a few old-timers as well. I’m really looking forward to the opportunity. I hope you can tune in.

If not, you will be able to find a podcast of the interview at the show’s link, above, sometime in the following week.

“Out of Our Minds” has been presenting poets both local and international for over 30 years. It is one of the longest running poetry radio shows in the country. The host, J.P. Dancing Bear, was the founding editor of the DMQ Review through 2003 when he turned the zine over to me. In 2004 he went on to found and edit the hard copy journal American Poetry Review. He is also owner and editor of Dream Horse Press, and as an accomplished poet himself, has published four books and numerous chapbooks. We’re going to have fun. Please join us!

  1. Hi Sally, that was an interesting conversation with JP DB about the origins of DMQ—and of course, listening to you reading from Juanita is always a pleasure. Pushpa
