poetry super Sunday! i heart Triple R



This Sunday I have two big gigs in the lead up to my gig at Manchester Lane on Wednesday night. Firstly I'll be doing a live-to-air on Triple R on Sunday night the 16th August around 7pm. This will be on Jonathan Alley's program called Under The Sun. I'll be performing with the mime set and we'll be doing two tracks from our show Death To Your Dreams as well as a short interview. So if you'd like a sneak preview of what to expect from the show on Wednesday night then please tune in to 102.7 FM on Sunday night around 7pm, if you're not near a radio, it's also streamed live on the internet! And I can never mention Triple R without mentioning the program Aural Text, the greatest supporters of spoken word in Melbourne, hosted by the spunkalicious duo of alicia sometimes and Steve Grimwade.
Then after my live-to-air on Triple R, I'll be shooting over to Glitch Bar and Cinema, 318 St Georges Rd, Nth Fitzroy to do a spoken word performance with the immensely talented Klare Lanson assisting with visuals. Also performing on that bill is Twilight Mockery and Wind Up Toys and it's only 5 bucks to get in! Doors open 8:30pm.

Hi I just came across your work on the going down swinging comp. Its great. This is a bit of a long shot - but did you ever do a recording where a boy talks about his relationship to religion / god /etc? It is something that Ive heard before on RRR but never caught the title or the name.
I look forward to hearning you on wednesday.
cheers, tim

Hey thanks a lot Tim. I think the other piece you might be referring to could be 'Seven Dead Astronauts, Seven New Stars.' Maybe? I just uploaded an audio file of it onto my MySpace page at http://www.myspace.com/seanmwhelan. Let me know if that's the one you were thinking of. If you come along to the gig on Wed night then introduce yourself to me. Any friend of the Big Lebowski is a friend of mine.

That's so retail and told, man - if i'd known you were on RRR< I would have listened. As it was, I was ignorant, broke, hungover and slightly retail myself, so there's the reason I didn't make it to Glitch either. Hope all went without a, erm ... hmm.

Untold!
