Write Action Radio Hours on Sunday

On Sunday, May 15 Rolf Parker- Houghton's radio show The Write Action Radio Hour at 5 p.m. on WVEW, 107.7 FM, will feature readings of poems in the original Welsh language, read and translated by Brattleboro resident, David Houghton.

Welsh poetry is renowned for employing the power of rhymes in the middle of lines as well as many complicated and intricate rhyme and metrical patterns to create a lilting but energetic music.
