WAER sets poems to music

Throughout the month of April, WAER-FM 88.3 is featuring readings of music-inspired poetry by Georgia Popoff at 1:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday.

Listeners will hear such Popoff poems as "All Blues and So Forth (for Miles and Roger)," "Night Train," "The Blind Piano Tuner" and "Billie Sings 'Body and Soul.'"

Several of the poems were set to music at WAER's own studios.

Popoff is a community poet, educator, spoken-word producer and managing editor of The Comstock Review. She is also writer-in-residence to several regional school districts.
