This edition introduces Mel Rexroat as the new host of Mixed Media, and we start her off with some good Karma: a pair of readings from the Karma in the Café series at Lexingtons Good Foods Co-op. The co-op has been hosting a series of readings by Kentucky writers as part of its efforts to sustain the physicaland spiritualhealth of its community. In this one, Henry County writer Wendell Berry makes a rare television appearance with a reading from That Distant Land, a new collection of stories of Port William, the setting for most of his fiction over the past 40 years.
Berrys reading is preceded by one from Lexington poet Rebecca Howell, an English instructor at the University of Kentucky and the director of the Kentucky Women Writers Conference. She reads from her collection Of Course This Means I Wont Be Coming to Calcutta, which deals with love and distance and the difficulties that arise from each.
Finally, Mel interviews Louisville singer-songwriter John Mann. A native of Western Kentucky, he is the cousin of former Sun Records artist Carl Mann. John performs two songs with his band, which includes Marc Jones, David Nofsinger, and Randy Arnold.
