Stewart Pink on Phoenix FM (The Poetry Podcast)

By Stewart Pink
Every week I do a little poem and I share it on the radio. A little witty ditty inspired by something that has caught my eye or captured my imagination during the week. This podcast is a collection of those poems; an audiological anthology born out of my favourite part of my weekly radio show.
If you enjoy these poems then try the live shows; Friday afternoons from 1-3pm and Saturday nights from 10pm-midnight on Phoenix FM.
You can tune in from anywhere in the world online at

WILSON! Boris writes a letter, Tony wants a text, nobody wants a tea towel & Gaga stage dives...
Skating legend, Tony Hawk, kick flipped out of nowhere asking for some textual deviation - so we set our listeners on the case and before long, he was inundated with bizarre questions, butt dials and everybody replying "who dis?" to his every text. I wrote a poem about the unnamed guardian of Wilson’s Corner, unknown legend - “Wilson” and I may have mentioned Brexit a few times. Then we “sympathised” with Lady Gaga’s tumble off a Las Vegas stage, shared our surprising injuries without a cool backstory (I dislocated my shoulder making a cheese toastie) and we found out all the reasons why Primark’s new tea towel drew a less than accurate picture of London.
