  1. Nice interview with The Listener, Will. He’s an interesting guy, and it was great to hear the story behind those intriguing tracks.
    Thanks for talking about Slam Idol on the show, and playing both promos. A minor correction, though: actually 4 poets in the current Slam Idol contest have been on Cloudy Day Art: Belinda Subraman, Larry Winfield, Patricia Irvine and you.
    Stephen Fry’s book is coming out this Thursday, and my interview with him should be coming out around the same time…

  2. Ah, you are correct, Sir. Thanks!

    I’m looking forward to hearing your interview.


  3. Enjoyed the show. I like his music and his name: Listener. Nothing more valuable than a good listener. We all need them.

    I’ll send something for 2nd Sunday within a couple of weeks.

  4. Ah, you are correct, Sir. Thanks!

    I'm looking forward to hearing your interview.
