Why radio works: “Over an Open Mike, Young Voices Speak in Verse” June 12, 2007

Posted by William Spear in >> News, >> Out Basket.

David K. Randall recounts the Friday 8 June open mike session for Public School 321 of Park Slope, Brooklyn (published 12 June 2007; New York Times).

Emceed by John Ellrodt, an educational consultant whose children attend P.S. 321, and held in a Barnes & Noble bookstore, Randall tells of battling nerves, wearing caps, berets, and other Beat protocol, and listening to kids “reading poems about the ocean, giant bugs and an older man named Tony who sits on the stoop smoking every night.”

Lit Between the Ears salutes John Ellrodt for organizing the event.

Further, we hope the young authors continue to write and tell stories for the human voice.

Radio works.
