Series produced by melodically challenged

Welcome to the spring season of melodically challenged! We will have new shows every week throughout the Spring semester and in January we start with shows that have animals scampering throughout the poems and music. We begin with RATS! (poems that feature both the despicable rodent and the adorable squirrel), we’ll follow that with cats: our Purr-etry show, and after that, of course, we’ll be Gone To The Dogs. We’ll also have a Hot Cool Jazz show written and voiced by our new music director and the newest member of our team: Nancy Correro, a PhD student at Georgia State University. Keegan Osburn, who graduated last year with a BA in Audio Engineering, is another new member of our team: a Sound Editor who works on our shows to give us the best audio quality possible. After Nancy’s show, we’ll look at speed with our A Snail’s Pace and Full Speed Ahead shows.
Later in the semester, we will feature a special guest editor: Dr. Julia Brock, who is a history professor at the University of West Georgia. We hope to bring you a Vietnamese translation show, and we are working on shows that focus on individual poets we admire and literary journals that feature audio tracks of their poetry.

As for our crew, both Jessica Temple and Kathy (K.B.) Kincer graduated with PhDs in Creative Writing last May, and continue to direct, write, voice, and produce shows as well as teach. Dr. Temple teaches at the University of Alabama at Huntsville and Calhoun Community College, and her chapbook: Seamless and Other Legends is available from Finishing Line Press and on Amazon. K.B. Kincer taught at the University of West Georgia and Saint Leo University in the fall, and she will only teach at Saint Leo part-time this spring so she can devote time to marketing melodically challenged to other college radio stations. K. B. Kincer’s chapbook, After the Transplant, will be published by LaVita Poetica Press in June of 2016. Hide full description
