Listening Lyrics for 4pm on May 10th, 2013

Truly a remarkable and mesmerizing hour with Michael and his ability to verbally paint a story. Michael Ellis was first acknowledged as a poet when he was 17.He was published twice before he reached 19. He was immediately compared to Harlem Renaissance poet, Langston Hughes, a measure he neither embraced or denied. Stil his ability to write in Southern dialect at a young age quickly garnered attention from the University of Puget Sound where he pursued English and Journalism.

Pieter!!! I was listening to few of your shows today.
First- this is high quality stuff!!!! I was blown away!!! great music, great interviews, great ideas for the show. I'm a fan!!!!
Secondly- You two have great communication there. 
Third- for me, it is just brilliant to be able to listen to you two. Your voice sounds so familiar. It feels like sitting with you in the same room. You sound so calm and I just LOVE it.

Mesmerizing show Pieter. Gave me that moment of pause and allowed me to begin wrapping my arms around music and lyrics which will let calm settle in. An excellent compilation of wonderful words and sounds. Thanks.  

Love the new dimension and the seamless, feed-each-other, dimension it gives the program's back and forth banter. Great music selection and accompanying background info this week!

So good, so listenable, so smooth,and exactly my favorite style in music. Thanks Pieter and Alex.


What can I say; I LOVED THIS SHOW!

Additionally, I'll let you in on a secret, this was the first time that I listened to, not one, but two complete Rap songs -- and enjoyed them. :)


Loved the show and thoroughly enjoyed Cory. Tell him what Michael J Fox once said; "I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business."  He was excellent.

the October 3rd show was way too short. What a mellow and superbly classy hour that just blew by. Thanks!


Kind words from a kind brother - thank you

Underground Grandpa rocks!!

Thanks ed
