On radio this Saturday,

Will talk about verse,
To make matters worse,
He may not have that much to say.

    I’m breaking an embargo on reading or posting on Moynes posts to wish Rick great success in his new series.

    I’m sure he’ll be a big hit with the target audience he needs to reach: people who don’t know anything about poetry and don’t care.

      Reminds me of when Victoria Coren of ‘Only Connect’ tv quiz show, a week or so ago, said that her producers were looking to dumb down the show and she should refer to ‘Mozart’ as ‘the composer Mozart’… she refused.

    …Rick O’Shea is to poetry what Heather Humphreys is to Arts….a display of contempt…shame on RTE.

    It doesn’t really matter who presents this programme because its focus will be entirely on contemporary poetry i.e. doggerel with pretensions.
