Enjoy our favorite shows that aired in the fall of 2016 and the spring of 2017 while we create next season's shows. Because of the special elections happening throughout the country, we will begin by airing our shows featuring poems about the ideas that grip us in the news and in our personal lives. Although the themes are politically charged, our shows are not, and will never take sides or become caustic in any way, they simply consider healthcare, the environment, National Parks, Truth and Lies, and Peace from a poet's perspective. We hope you enjoy them!

Welcome to The Best of melodically challenged: Summer of 17. Because of the special elections happening throughout the country, we will begin with shows that feature poems about the ideas that grip us in the news and in our personal lives. Although the themes are politically charged, our shows are not, and will never take sides or become caustic in any way, they simply consider healthcare, the environment, National Parks, Truth and Lies, and Peace from a poet's perspective. After these shows, you will hear our Vietnamese Translation show, featuring poems from The Secret of Hoa Sen, a show about Natural Disasters (right in the middle of hurricane season), shows about brothers and sisters, shows about mornings and nights, and shows about sugar and spices. We hope you enjoy them!
