- Sound Poetry: Airs 8pm daily. – Part I of David Gilmour’s interview with Koon Woon: “Born in a small village in 1949 China, [Koon Woon] listens to the edge of America, pours Cantonese nouns into a Stevens/Eliot/Whitman mixmaster and serves up dispatches from a borderland where expulsion is a state of grace.” — The Village Voice // “These poems set a thousand horses galloping in the Asian diaspora in which so many are caught.” — Lawrence Ferlinghetti // “In these poems, I hear Koon Woon singing from his ‘crib’—a unique kind of blues that reverberates all the way from little village Canton to the homeless alleys of Seattle… These bent notes float out of his window, twist and ring out into the cold crisp air of a gray winter sky. ‘When the cooks go home in nights like bits/of shrimp in bitter melon soup…’ Drink it down, drink it down. The soup of this poet produces a bitter but satisfying warmth that needs to be experienced.”— Alan Chong Lau, Author, Blues and Greens // Learn more about Koon Woon here: https://kaya.com/authors/koon-woon/ // Previous episodes air at 8am daily.
