    Hello! Thanks for using my work on your show. Do you have a live stream through which someone in, say, Pennsylvania, could listen in?

    It looks like a fun program.

      WRAS does not at the moment, but there are several free apps that you can download that will let you listen to radio stations live. We play your poetry because we love and admire your poetry—the subject matter and craft—you appear regularly on our show and have for years, thanks to From the Fishouse, who has given us permission to air your poems. Do you have any more audio available that we can play? Kathy

      Hi, Gabriel,
      Just going through old comments and thought I’d give you an update. We do now have a live stream through WRAS, our home station out of Georgia State University. You can listen online at http://www2.gsu.edu/~www885/ or via your favorite radio app. We are on a holiday break right now, but we’ll be back with new shows in mid-January. Keep writing great poems, and we’ll keep playing them!
      Best for 2016,
      Jessica Temple

    i was hoping you could tell me the name of the song about stan’s exotic sandwiches?

      That poem is “Sandwich Stan” from a CD by Jack Prelutsky called My Dog May Be a Genius. He’s the first children’s Poet Laureate, but he is so popular because his poems are so witty. Another poem written by Jack Prelutsky I love is “The Underwater Marching Band.” Thanks for listening! kathy
