THE RADIO READING PROJECT

produced by Rosanne Limoncelli and Ernesto Livon-Grosman
hosted by Ernesto Livon-Grosman

In the 1980s, together with Rosanne Limoncelli, I started the Radio 
Reading Project, a series of recordings and interviews in English and 
Spanish with poets from South and North America. The recordings, all 
made at NYU radio studio, were a public extension of some of the 
exchanges that are still so prevalent today.  These readings and 
interviews covered a long range of topics, from the poetics of 
translation to the politics of performance. Today, presented as a 
whole in a new digital format as part of the PennSound archives, 
these readings and interviews lay out a network of artists that in 
some cases never met each other beyond this site yet they all share 
an interest in discussing what a poetics of the Americas might be.
