Bland On Bland – Peace

Bland On Bland – The BookThe theme for this week’s JVG Radio Method poem is “Peace“.

Last show for the year phoned in. A Christmas theme, well that’s how I interpreted it and it appears Ed did as well ( some nice bell ringing in there)

So that’s it for 2021, another year of covid, vaccinations, lockdowns and some amazing creativity. I for one am looking forward to 2022.

Bland On Bland – Still Here

Bland On Bland – The BookThe theme for this week’s JVG Radio Method poem is “Still Here“.

Another show phoned in. The format this year is really giving us a bit of time to play with how the poems are presented…

JVG this week decided to acknowledge the last show of Still Here, which was presented by Yorta Yorta man Neil Morris.

It did a great job of showcasing Indigenous song both of the now and the past, in its various forms, and was a great lead in to The Radio Method

I chose to do a prose piece from an alleged book I have notes for all over the place, this snippet seemed more than appropriate.
