"Poetry from Studio 47" debuts on SDPB Radio
Poet and Augustana University professor Patrick Hicks hosts Poetry from Studio 47, a new weekly feature during SDPB’s In the Moment that highlights the life and work of poets.
Poetry from Studio 47 is recorded at Studio 47, a world-class recording studio at Augustana University. The program is produced by Augustana University Orchestra Conductor Peter Folliard, who also wrote the opening music.
The program features a variety of poets but will focus on the poets of the Midwest and Great Plains. “We have a wealth of poetic talent in our state and it will be fun to share it with listeners,” says Hicks. “I think listeners are going to appreciate tuning in. Poems are essentially just little stories, and who doesn’t like a good story?”
