Hanging Out With Red Kites

Red Kite Radio

This week has been a surreal week and I have been hanging out with Red Kites; not the feathered versions but the great team who have just launched our new local radio station, Red Kite Radio.

The radio station launched on Sunday the 18th of June 2017 and I was honoured to be the first ever guest on Red Kite Radio reading live my poem (pictured above), dedicated to the new station.  Below is evidence of the big day (just in case the Poetry Police are monitoring) and for Mrs.D who says I have the perfect face for radio.

Davy D points poignantly at a wall.

Every Monday starting from July 3rd 2017 I will be on the Howard Bond show between 3.20pm and 3.30pm talking about poetry, reading some of my poetry and poetry written by local writers, as well as some of the more famous and well known poems.

This has kick started a project to include recordings of some of my longer poems and excerpts from the radio bits on the blog, which will also be starting on Inside the Mind of Davy D in July.

You can find Red Kite Radio locally in the UK on 107.2 FM and the station will be available on the internet soon.

In readiness for my first appearance I’m off to buy a Cravat and a Persian Cat.

This is great, Dave. Best of luck with the radio show, looking forward to tuning in. Is Mrs D. like Mrs Columbo? (i.e. we’ll never see her, but she runs the show).

    Thank you Gina for your kind words. If I get any ideas about being a celebrity Mrs. D will put me firmly in my place. I think my list of jobs has been increased just to remind me 🙂
