KPFK Radio-LA 90.7FM ROUDOKU&Interview

It always seems to be a new challenge, to do tanka reading for the audience over the microphone. It was also a new experience for me to receive an intereview in English. I received many questions, some of which were tough to answer even in my mother tongue. Ms. Louis P. Jones and I built quite a rapport. She listened to 16 pieces of my tanka, and some times she had tears in her eyes. After the 30-minute recording, the producer and Ms. Louis offered me to be appear in a longer program next time. I was very happy, and hope this leads me into another new challenge.
