May 26, 2017 Jessica, Koraly and Santo free-for-all

A rare programme with three presenters together in the studio : 3CR Spoken Word co-founder Santo Cazzati with newer personnel Koraly Dimitriades and Jessica Alice. Topics discussed include the immigrant experience, feminist theory in poetry, youth culture, and the musicality of the voice. Each presenter performs one of their poems : Santo does Music for Restaurants, about the Vietnamese immigrant experience; Koraly does a tough and touching selection from her Love and Fuck Poems; and Jessica does the elegiac When The Bed Is Burning. We also hear the recorded voice of the other programme co-founder Rhonda Jankovic reading one of her poems. At the time, Rhonda was near death and unable to be in the studio, so the programme was a quiet tribute to her.
