“Radio Mash-Ups” by Winston Plowes


Teacher, compere, performer and poet, Winston Plowes spends his days fine-tuning background noise and rescuing discarded words. These are re-sculpted over a glass of wine into poetry birds he releases by night to fly to new homes in journals and online destinations worldwide. He lives in a floating home in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire UK, were he tries to persuade his black cat, ‘Fatty’ that it’s a good idea for her to do the same.

The following “Radio Mash-Ups” were composed during his role as Poet in Residence for Recycle Radio, Sep. – Oct. 2016.
