ATHENS, Ohio (WOUB) — WOUB has been bringing together artists of all types to reflect on poetry, on air, for several decades. Regular contributors Wendy McVicker, Albert Rouzie, Ivars Balkits, and Bonnie Proudfoot spoke with WOUB Culture about what they bring to the programming, and why they think poetry has been a mainstay part of WOUB’s programming for so long. Listen to their conversation, embedded above.

Wendy McVicker is the Poet Laureate of Athens, OH, and also regularly contributes to WOUB’s programming via her poetry program River of Words.

Albert Rouzie is a singer-songwriter, and you can find information on his upcoming performances and releases on his Facebook page.
