Karl Parkinson on the Radio

Well, this weekend, on Sunday to be precise, at 4pm (11pm in Beijing) to be preciser, I will be joined by the very fantastic Karl Parkinson on the Sunday Scrapbook confessional couch.

Karl has had Poems published in Baby Beef Heart zine, Revival poetry journal and Census the 2nd Seven Towers anthology. He won the award for most entertaining video for Dublin 2009 at the Balcony TV awards. He has performed at Glor, Tongue box, night Hawks, brown bread mix tape, naked lunch, exchange words and many more and is one of four poets to appear on the Naked and Hungry spoken word C.D. He recently organised and performed at his own event in the CFCP called Shooting from the lip.
Influences include: The Beat generation, Bukowski, Selby jr, Rimbaud, Blake, Henery Miller, Mikey Pinero, Saul williams, Celine, kafka, joy division, Diego Maradona, Bruce Lee, Shakespeare, Joyce, The Romantics, Whitman, Yeats, Plath, Dave Lordin, Dylan Thomas, Bob Dylan and Led Zep, Muhammed Ali,The Doors, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Lorca, orwell, Huxley, Melville, The stone roses, The Verve, James Brown, Mozart, Jazz, Blues, Dali, Carravggio, Van Gogh, Kahlo, Plato, The sky, Trees, Air, Water, Fire, you, everything...

The Herald recently mentioned how he can make time stand still with his poetry, which is going to play havoc with the show scheduling, but sure we like a challenge... Check him out here if you think you're hard enough.
His theme for the show is "Drugs: Addiction and Inspiration"

Listen live on the Liffey Sound link on the right there, or sure catch up on soon after

And if you don't do that, at least do this
