Call in to speak with the host
Janet Dawson has been writing for over 15 years, and is the author of 3 books. For 3 -4 years she ran a successful BlogTalk Radio show entitled "A Day in the Life of a Poet", which centered around poetry, writing, and the different ways we are inspired. She then started hosting a show entitled "Janet Dawson Presents" under WDEP, which aired twice weekly, as well as hosting "One Voice One Mic", which aired two weeknights and a Sunday afternoon show, on her own station. Both shows featured poetry, spoken word, and music by indie artists. She has had the pleasure of interviewing and working with rapper Kurtis Blow, David Reed (the director of the Boys and Girls Club in Atlanta), jazz keyboardist Oli Silk, Eyrk Moore, Hunnie, Mannie the Poet, and Renard Yearby aka Bad Boy #2. She also co-hosted with Clay Phillips on Pounds of Sound, and Norman Verikal on Verikal Bistro.
One Voice One Mic later became a group used to help others promote their music and or poetry. Poet Tiana Clayton, Sandi Mynite Angel, and Rapper/ Poet I.K.P. started traveling holding different open mics in different cities once a year to help raise money or awareness. The first one was in Titusville, and the second was in Texas. For about a year, she wrote for the The Digital Conglomerate Magazine highlighting and interviewing poets every other month.
