Alzheimer Poets, The Kitchen Sisters, New Tools Editor…
The Kitchen Sisters are fun. They just are. If you’re having a party, you want to invite them. We did. Join us on the Transom.org Discussion Boards this month where Lost & Found Sound’s Nikki Silva and Davia Nelson are our Special Guests. Read their “notes from the kitchen.”
Can you be a poet and not know it? First-time radio producer Amy Silverman discovers an unusual program in Arizona that sends writers into nursing homes to create poetry with Alzheimer’s patients. In true Transom.org fashion, she makes the piece by borrowing gear and imposing on friends. Listen to: “A Good Trip on This Paper” and join the discussion.
New Discussion Boards
If you’re a Transom regular, or if you’re not, come try the new Discussion Board software and tell us how it’s working for you and what we can improve.
We have a “Tools Editor”! This makes us happy as you can tell from the exclamation mark. It’s Jeff Towne, a fine producer/engineer with the show “Echoes” who for years has given good advice to producers and now he’ll being doing it at Transom.org. Look for his first column on setting up the ProTools Free software.
We’re about to publish our first downloadable “Transom Quarterly” in PDF format made up of highlights from the site. You’ll hear about it here… soon,
