Join host Nick Spitzer on this weekend’s American Routes as we listen for poetry in music, and music in poetry; songs as poems, and poems as songs. The work of Langston Hughes, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and Ken Nordine will be featured.

American Routes will also visit New York’s City Lore with poet-folklorist Steve Zeitlin, who rides the POEMobile to the People’s Poetry Gathering, and then it’s back to New Orleans to meet Louisiana’s poet laureate, Mona Lisa Saloy.

American Routes airs on WUMB every Sunday from noon to 2 PM.
