The volunteer-based community radio station KFAI broadcasts from a funky upstairs studio in the Cedar Riverside neighborhood. Write On! Radio, its literary program, has been broadcasting lively interviews with authors weekly for many years. Their guest list is eclectic, including national names, writers on tour, local authors, self-pubbed poets--always varied, and always interesting.

 

Hosts Ian Graham Leask, Lynette Reini-Grandell and Steve McEllistrem are all writers in their own right--Leask was long affiliated with Scarletta Press in the Twin Cities; Reini-Grandell, who teaches at Normandale Community College, is a poet (and is this month's featured poet in The River Muse); and McEllistrem has a new sci-fi book, "The Deveraux Dilemma," pubbing this spring.

The show airs Tuesdays at 7 p.m.; KFAI is at 90.3 FM in Minneapolis, 106.7 FM in St. Paul, and on the Web at www.kfai.org. Archives are on the Web for two weeks (and somtimes more).

This week's guests are Minneapolis poet Sun Yung Shin, author of "Rough, and Savage," and Iowa writer Joe Blair, author of  the memoir, "By the Iowa Sea."
