Poetry from Studio 47 is a weekly radio broadcast that airs on NPR affiliate, South Dakota Public Broadcasting. The show highlights poetry from the Midwest, the Great Plains, and beyond. Each episode—which is hosted and curated by Patrick Hicks —is roughly five minutes long and features poets who are experts at their craft. All poems are used with permission and the show is recorded live-to-tape at Studio 47, which is proudly housed at Augustana University. Our producer is Peter Folliard, who also wrote the opening music. We’re having a blast making this, and we hope that you enjoy it, too.
