Saturday 16th of April, Colin Young and Kai Schweizer!

Our two features this Saturday 16th April 2016 are eclectic, elusive but worth listening to.

Colin Young is volunteer Publicity Officer at FAWWA.  If you google “Colin Young poet”, you get images of Donald Trump, Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow, but none of Colin. Colin translates ancient Greek poetry, has a PhD in Ancient/Classical Greek Language and Literature, has been known to wear a golden wreath (ancient Roman style), but his poetry is grounded in the here and now.
