Peter reads from his book Cravings For A Spectacular Sun and talks about a very wide range of topics, including : working 44 hours a week as a bus driver to fund his first poetry book; rare descriptions of sex-on-site venues and their etiquette; busking with his flute at Footscray Station; the local life of Fitzroy; and his poetry teacher, the revered Ania Walwicz.


Jon Garrett and the Spinning Room

August 29, 2017

Spoken Word presenter Santo is joined by Jon Garrett, who founded the legendary poetry gig Spinning Room in London before successfully transferring it to Melbourne, where it had a long run of memorable weekly events. Quite a feat to keep a gig running every week! And we hear Jon talking about the many characters who attended over 15 years. We also hear Jon's own poetry, in which he reveals very wide influences - quite eclectic really. A highlight is his tongue-in-cheek self-declaration as a poet, 'Work In Progress'.
