BBC radio and gigs all coming up...

Good Morning Team Unbound!

Hope you all had wonderful Easter holidays!

I just wanted to let you all know I have lots of cool radio and gig news for you this week.

April 22nd / Today is the broadcast of my commisssion for BBC World Service / Click Radio at 6.30pm

April 23rd /  Tomorrow I'm reading poems and talking books on BBC Scotland / The Culture Show at 2.30pm

In other news...

My fabulous producer Rebecca Maxted and I have just returned from a cold and snowy Chicago, it was an amazing trip.

We met so many wonderful jazz and blues legends, recorded some brilliant stories and live music...loved it.

'Try a Little Tenderness - The Lost Legacy of Little Miss Cornshucks' will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 / May 13th / 11.30am

Pictured above is a moment of madness when I got up on stage and did a blues poem with Carl Weathersby at Kingston Mines.

Thank you to all who took part in this programme, I hope more people discover the beautiful songs of Cornshucks after this....

I have two really fun gigs this week:

April 24th / Thurs: I'm on team poetry for 'Stand Up and Slam' Comedians v's Poets, The Comedy Cafe, Rivington St, London 

April 25th / Friday: I'm performing up in Edinburgh at Neu Reekie, Summerhall

See you there, hear you near, tune in and turn on,

Sending much love and thanks to all Unbounders!

I'm so excited about ALL of the above...

Buzz buzz buzz....
