KXCI Radio and Words On the Avenue Team Up and Create a Winning Series

Posted By on Fri, Mar 3, 2017 at 5:14 PM

KXCI radio (91.3) and Tucson poet society Words on the Avenue teamed to create a video series that highlights the powerful work of local poets. And the first episode is now available, and damn is it lovely. It rises on writer Roch Mirabeau's beautifully paced verse and graceful in-person performance of "My Pops Told Me," tackling themes of freedom, equality, fatherhood and "Trumped-up" politics in a little more than two minutes. It's easy to fall in love with Mirabeau's subtle power and empathy. Watch it below.

This new series, by the way, is generated by Words on the Avenue founder Teré Fowler-Chapman (who happens to be on the cover of this week's Tucson Weekly) as well as videographer Julius Schlosburg, and KXCI Director of Content Hannah Levin. Fowler-Chapman says at KXCI.org that she's "excited to collaborate with KXCI within this vivid new format because like Words on the Avenue KXCI is a community-based platform. This collaboration allows us to archive and re-listen to some of the most powerful lines performed in our space. This collaboration is magic."
