After Shocks is the subject of two radio interviews. The first, which ran live on Dec. 3 on BlogTalk Radio, hosted by Dr. Arlene Barro, is archived at BlogTalk Radio Interview with After Shocks editor Tom Lombardo. The second will air this coming Sunday, Dec. 14, at 8 PM on the radio program Cover To Cover on Georgia Public Broadcasting. The producer/host Jeff Calder taped an interview with me a couple of weeks ago. He has intercut readings of poems from After Shocks contributors David Bottoms, who is Georgia's Poet Laureate, and Alexa Selph, an Atlanta-based poet, along with Garrison Keillor reading a Thomas Lux poem from After Shocks.
You don't have to live in Georgia to hear this broadcast. You can listen simultaneously on the web at www.gpb.org/covertocover on Sunday night at 8 PM. In case you miss it, the program will be archived at that same web address for later listening.
If you live in Georgia, note that Georgia Public Broadcasting does NOT have an Atlanta affiliate, unfortunately. The WABE station in Atlanta, which is NPR, is NOT GPB. In Atlanta, to hear this program at 8 PM, you could try 88.1 FM, which is a nearby GPB affiliate. Or go to the URL listed above, and linked here:
