September 15, 2012 George Albon Part 4

This past Saturday we played our fourth (and sadly final) part of our interview with San Francisco poet George Albon. We had the pleasure of playing (and hearing) his song 'What the Forgotten Want'. George talked more his specific process in composition. We continued to discuss poem as structure or site as well as fluency and difficulty. How is the reader intrigued by the challenge of a poem? George also covered the way poetry is taught in schools. After the break, we heard more from and about his book Momentary Songs.
Also, look out for his essay Aspiration, forthcoming from Krupskaya Press in 2013!
* Please note, the beginning of the archives starts with Dana Teen Lomax's interview. This is because we were late getting to the station this day. Please keep listening. We come on a couple of minutes in
