No, it's my settings on my laptop.
Sorry, got it now!
It's very good. I'd like to hear it read as a poem to the music to get the true feeling of a tribute.
Nice one.

Is it only me who can't hear this?
Not a syllable or even a note?

Hi Tony

Thanks for the message. I keep inviting you through Facebook and we'd be pleased to see you. It's fair to say that we do favour "stage" rather than "page" but poetry is a broad church and we do have all styles here. We have to limit readings to three minutes but that's because we have had up to 24 readers some nights.

Our next show is 14th March which will be the launch of our Anthology which includes contributions from John Hegley and other guest poets as well as local writers.

I feel a bit guilty about not getting to Coventry recently but as you can see, I have had a manic year and we've had a link with Word at the Y in Leicester which falls on the same night as yours (First Tuesdays seem to be a very popular night for poetry! There's loads on).

Please give my best to Jon and I hope to get back to Coventry soon. If you could make 14th March, it would be great to see you.

Best wishes,
