Radio junkies: that is indeed my voice that will be broadcasting a small satellite of a poem to the anonymous star stations in your heads. Tomorrow, between 2-3pm PT. Origin: our local NPR planet 94.9 KUOW. Hook your galaxy up to mine here http://www.kuow.org/listen/. ... I repeat... Radio junkies: "Someone found a letter you wrote me on the radio / & they told the world just how you felt / It must have fallen out of a hole in your old brown overcoat / They never said your name but I knew just who they meant" ...
