David Borodin reads two Emily Dickinson poems: #584 and #620

David Borodin is a retired art appraiser, originally from Philadelphia but now living at Twin Lakes, Idaho. He identifies his poetic work with the so-called New Formalist tradition, with its renewed attention to the use of meter, rhyme, and stanzaic symmetry as instruments of effective patterning. Although his poems are inspired by a wide range of subjects, including music, visual art, literature and love, his abiding interest in cognitive science provides a special focus for exploring through his poems the phenomenon of consciousness. Although available in hardcopy as well, he makes all his poetry available to read for free on his website David Borodin, Formalist Poet, which may be found at davidborodin.org. 

Verne Windham got his start at Spokane Public Radio 20 years ago. “I came in to complain and they hired me.” He’s now the Program Director, as well as the host of Morning Classical and Concert of the Week. When choosing music for Morning Classical, Verne likes to keep the agenda as broadly defined as possible. For Concert of the Week, he focuses on the best of recent local performances, mostly classical in nature. For many years, Verne was also the conductor of the Spokane Youth Orchestra. He enjoys gardening, his vintage car and playing French horn.
