Open Conversation | Radio Appearance

One of my favorite places for web-radio is at the one and only Epiphany’s House, and she has invited me back for discussion on my new book “Freedom, As It Happens”.  This will be the first open discussion I will have about the poems in this personal collection of work; I say personal for two reasons, the first of which is that poems are always personal (should be) and secondly because this collection is more autobiographical in nature.  Epiphany is a great conversationalist and the setting she facilitates makes for a great atmosphere for talking about poems and other things (to keep it simple).

You are cordially invited to listen in, but furthermore if you have been on the fence at purchasing this book (time are hard—when the choice is bread or poems) then listen in for a chance to get a copy for FREE.  Also, the book will go on sale for a significant discount during the airing of this broadcast.  So come by and listen to this conversation…yeah eavesdrop by invitation.

I thank you all for the consistent support and daily visits here.

What Would You Say…

excerpt from an interview with Radio Show Neo-Lystically Speaking (circa 2010)

Host: Tshombe, if you were given a 30-second slot to stand on a grandstand and have the world hear what you have to say, what would be your message?

Tshombe: I would recite to them Proverbs 7:4-5 – Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,” and to insight, “You are my relative.” They will keep you from the adulterous woman, from the wayward.

Host: Wow!

Radio Appearance| Announcement & Invitation

Every once in a while I receive an invite to be interviewed in the subject of poetry, rarely is it beyond that save one venue; this being my fourth appearance on the Epiphany’s House (hosted by the Bay Area’s Epiphany Castro) I am excited about the conversation we’re going to have, which is rarely just about poetry (which is sort of poetic—in my head).  Epiphany has invited me back for the second time this year to serve as her guest in closing out the year 2013; I am certain that we both have had a profound and productive year, and a chance at discussing that in the open on air is exhilarating.  As reader of my contents, I extend an invitation to you (if available) to check us out at the below details.  Please if the moment moves you call in with your poems (haiku, dirges, wakas, etc.), I would love to hear your words…as her maxim goes, “this is the place where artists meet!”

Epiphany’s House Presents Tshombe Sekou | Blog Talk Radio

New Icon (tshombe IV)After many years of being the interviewer in poetry radio, I now take the rare opportunities to avail myself for dialogue on other radio shows; this I think, is highly essential in giving context to one’s own creative process while enriching others. The host of Epiphany’s House, Epiphany Castro, has asked me to make a third appearance for her 2013 National Poetry Month lineup, which to date has been phenomenal with some of my most favorited poets, last week it was poet Shihan who sat on her couch—how could I refuse?! This being my third visit to her set, and each time was something new; she still adulates the opportunity…and I appreciate the gesture.

So she and I personally invite you to share in this conversation of poetic musings:

Date: Sunday 21 April 2013

Time: 3pm EST | 12pm PST | 4am (Japan, my time)

Place: Your PC | Skype |  or phone ( Epiphany’s House Presents Tshombe Sekou! via Blog Talk Radio.

“For many moons he has been a guiding light to those of us in the artistic community, and even those who are not; he is simply a marvelous human being, and so much more…”

Epiphany Castro, Host Epiphany’s House
