Remember Stand As 1? Its return is on the horizon...


Blog Posted:6/27/2018 8:09:00 AM

Hi everybody.

To keep this short & sweet...

For those familiar with my old Stand As 1 Internet Radio show, it's been on hiatus for a long time. Life has tried its hardest to stop me from that, but now I'm going to be regaining some structure & control of that. So, if you've been on my show before as a guest & cohost, you may be hearing from me soon. :)

For those unfamiliar, in short, Stand As 1 is a long-running Internet Radio show focusing on Poetry & Spoken Word on all topics where I have a guest Poet from anywhere in the world and they get to be highlighted on the show where listeners, fans & I get to know each respective Poet on the show.

So, if I like your work here on PS, you've been on here for awhile & are a good egg, I may reach out to you.

If this happens, it will begin in July. More details very soon!

Cheers,

-D.J.E.

I would love to be considered, Drake - I am also recording an album for Hollywood Records at present, (80's R&B/Soul), but usually find ways to fit things in. Please read some of my work, if you';re not familiar with me, or ask "around" ... I think I'm thought of as a pretty good egg, (or hard-boiled anyway, lol). Blessings and best wishes for your show's success! :-)

Drake, this is Tom. Very nice guy. You have got to, got to, got to get him on your show. He writes short stories but I am not sure if he still has audio attached here at the soup. Tom has the ability to somehow change his voice, and when he does them as spoken word, you will be in stitches for weeks. Check his list for audio recordings. :-)

Have a wonderful time Drake, I am sure many would be honoured to have a spot on your show - I have a vague idea you interviewed Eileen not long after I joined soup, she is one awesome lady and I have loved hearing her do her rhymes of the times on soup - she would be an ideal candidate as she is so confident performing her wonderful poems:-) hugs jan xx
