28th october show 13

Today on the show is Rif Evans, singer and song writer.Also our own Ali Rogers with her book review for October. Plus me and a story from falmouth and a song from the rive Fal. More tunes from Twang guitarist Keith Wilson, more from Les Merton and Bert Biscoe.
The studio is looking great these days and Do the write thing is going for the record to see how many guests we can accommodate at one time!
Hope you enjoyed all the lovely poetry and song from last week. In case yours wasn't read, apologies but we hadn't time to read them all. Les Merton does a great job to get the magazine out 3 times a year so maybe we will feature yours on the next poetry special. Look out for the writing special in November with local actors reading local writers. And remember to send your contributions to us here at the Elms.
Poetrification at its best.

This week it's the wonderful performance poet, Bob Devereux. listeners of this show will know that I have played him many times over the last 11 weeks. He is a real presence on the stage and his poetry has to be experienced live to realise the sheer energy of it.
Plus the usual mix of music and local listings.
