We received the following announcement from Daisy\’s husband and daughter about her final show, which will be broadcast today.
Dearest family and friends,
It is with a bittersweet mix of feelings that we’d like to announce the FINAL, ONE-HOUR long show of Daisy’s radio program, “Poetry à la Carte” on Monday, October 12th from 5:00 – 6:00pm (EDT).
Poetry à la Carte has run for well over 600 shows now, since 2006! And, while Daisy would have liked to record a final show herself, we think she’d be pretty happy with what we’ve put together – an entire show of Daisy reading her own poetry (gathered from many years of the Poetry à la Carte archives). The first half of the show will be a revisit of Daisy’s 600th show, and the second half will be some additional poems and reminiscences of Daisy’s.
So please join us this coming Monday, Oct 12th from 5:00 – 6:00pm for this ONE HOUR show. *
PLEASE NOTE: This show is going out on broadcast radio, so it won’t be available for delayed listening later. Please join us at 5:00pm EST!
