Media Notices
Art Media or Media About the Arts

KPFZ has a new website.
http://kpfz.org/

        "Big Art" is the name of the show.     The show relates to anything having to do with art and artists in Lake County.  I believe that there are a lot of artists in Lake County who could use a voice to represent them and inform Lake County listeners about local artists and art events.  
       I'm open to any suggestions on improvements or volunteers to help me with getting the word out. If any of you have information about art events or art education in Lake County that needs to be mentioned, feel free to call me during the show 263-3435. Also, for the future, you can email me with pertinent information that I can mention in future shows. Most of all, I would like to schedule artist interviews for the shows, either to be interviewed live at the radio station or live by phone.
       I hope you will be able to tune in and maybe participate by calling in with some interesting information about art happenings or just to talk about art and artists in Lake County. In advance, thank you for your support.

Storytellers

Where the small river bends
in thicket of willow,
cottonwoods pretending to be clouds
drop snowflakes in a late spring breeze.
Early stars swim to their places
as yellow-eyed flame flickers,
excited to see
the children gathering.
Grandpa limps to his cushion-
smoke lying flat on the coals
crickets rattling a softer rhythm
in anticipation...
Now!
Hollow throat, roof of mouth, tongue and teeth,
strike the chord together
and voice ripens the story
to hang in the air...
spirit berries staining lips
with the red oral juice of our past.
Hands move,
features crease and smooth
become the drama of
fire, smoke, breeze, and sky
shadow, shape, sound and sigh
coughing, crying, and laughter
catch us in life's web...

Generation to generation
shoulder to shoulder
storytellers mold us…
until each face shines
polished with knowing
we belong together.
