Jed Milroy

In a slight change to our usual programme, we include a simulcast from WSPL Radio: Real Poetry Radio featuring their presenter Ryan “the Wolf” van Winkle interviewing Scottish folk music sensation Jed Milroy. Jed has recently become involved with creating memorable tracks from classic and modern poetry and we include three of his excellent poetry tracks – ‘An Irish Airman Foresees His Death’, inspired by the Yeats’ poem, ‘Love Never Dies’ inspired by the poem by Portobello poet Don Huggins and ‘The Storm Cone’ from the poem by Rudyard Kipling. Presented by Ryan “the Wolf” van Winkle. Produced by Colin “Copter” Fraser. Twitter: @byleaveswelive & @anonpoetry. Mail: splpodcast@gmail.com
