St. Rocco’s Broadcast for the Dispossessed is a bi-weekly radio program, which was launched in April of this year of this year. The program is drawn primarily from the St. Rocco’s Reading Series archives and we try to include a sound poetry segment in each regular episode.

St. Rocco’s Broadcast airs every other Tuesday at 7pm and Sunday at 10am on WCAA 107.3 as part of The Poetry Hour. To listen to our program archive, visit the WCAA archives and search for “Poetry Hour.” Programs are archived for 60 days.

A list of our past programs may be found at the bottom of this page. We also have call for submissions for special episodes which we publish on our blog. And, we are always seeking submissions for new works of sound poetry.
