August 29, 2017 Jon Garrett and the Spinning Room

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'.
