Headstand's Grande Finale - Listen Again

Well, the final Headstand show has gone out live on Cambridge radio as of Tuesday 19th August.  J.S.Watts was delighted to have been a live studio guest on the final broadcast and to have had the opportunity to read a series of valedictory poems in honour of the occasion.

What do you mean, you didn't hear it? Never mind, all is not lost.

You can listen to Headstand's Grande Finale with poets J.S. Watts and Rychard Carrington, and Maciek Pawlikowski from Cambridge 105 show Polish Waves on Mixcloud. There are also contributions from other past Headstand guests including Leanne Moden and Patrick Sheil and his band Moth Conspiracy and, of course, there is the show's polymath host, Patrick Widdess.

Click here to listen to the whole programme. You can find J.S.'s poetry reading at 14:45 minutes into the show, but you really ought to listen to the whole, wonderfully eclectic mix of music and poetry. You really ought.
