The Verb – a radio show is Radio 3’s cabaret of the word, featuring the best poetry, new writing and performances – and they very cordially invited me to talk and perform works as Professor Karmadillo. This was a great hour long recording session – you can listen to it on BBC IPlayer for another week.
Ian McMillan was a wonderful host, who completely made me feel at home despite me missing all my cues – luckily all the long pauses should be edited out the show. He was also great at warming the crowd up – I want him to introduce me for all my shows!
I can’t decide if the highlight of the show for me was Philip Langeskov’s short story or the excerpt of the poem about the train ride from Norwich to Sherringham by John Osbourn. Both were great, so I would recommend listening to the show to decide for yourselves!
