Shanna Compton


I'm on the radio

When I was in Bloomington-Normal, IL in November, I stopped by their local NPR affiliate WGLT to record some more poems for their show Poetry Radio.

Yesterday my poem "Panoramic View" from Brink was the poem of the week.

Panoramic View (mp3)
Publish Date: 03/20/2014 03:37 PM
Run Time: 2:22
written and read by Shanna Compton; music by Harpeth Rising (Eris from Tales From Jackson Bridge)

Here's another poem from the same session:

Back in Seaside (mp3)
Publish Date: 02/06/2014 01:30 AM
Run Time: 2:36
written and read by Shanna Compton; music by Patrick Williams, played by Quartet San Francisco (The Bay is Deep Blue from Pacific Premieres)

I don't know how many more they will run, but I think I did ten this time.

There are a few older poems from the first time I recorded for the show (in 2006) in the archives too. (They recently played "Fusion Lingo" again, from Down Spooky.)
