Daisy Mathias\’ poetry show

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!

– If you live in the Western MA listening area, you can tune your radio dial to the UMass radio station (WMUA 91.1).

With love, Anne & Bob

  1. Thank you for posting this service. It was lovely to hear Daisy’s voice reading her own poems one more time. She gave a great gift to our region by producing more than 500 shows of poetry and music on WMUA and for having been one of the founders and directors of the WriteAngles Conference. I am grateful to have worked with her for a few years (in a minor capacity) to support that conference. I send my condolences to Daisy’s husband and her daughter.

    Joanna Brown P.S. In South Hadley, I was not able to listen on 91.1 fm, so I finally streamed it from my laptop. I recorded the last 30 minutes of the program, if anyone who was not able to listen tonight wishes to hear it. You may contact me at joannabr@comcast.net.
