Ahead of Thursday’s Drive I was joined by fellow Phoenix FM presenter and fellow poet, Rob West. As well as co-presenting Phoenix FM’s Arts Programme Rob has found time during the pandemic to gather together a lifetime collection of his poems and publish them all alongside the story behind each one. Words, Words, Words features poems Rob has written in recent times as well as a few childhood gems that even won house points in school! We talked about his experience bringing together a lifetime collection of his poetry, what it was like revisiting some old ones, the memories they brought back and we even had a go at a new poetry podcast exclusive – a poem off!
