Lorna Dee's Love Songs - You Turn Me On, I'm A Radio - Free CDs For Free Radio

Donate now to Project Tupa and/or Free Radio and receive 7 free cds of love (and bummer love) songs compiled by me, Lorna Dee. Match my PayPal direct donation of $200, enough for a build-your-own-radio-transmitter kit for poor communities throughout the Américas, or more, and receive everything I've got: my new 5-volume book of new poetry, DRIVE: The First Quartet and a 250 page unpublished manuscript of new and selected love poems (mostly new) which I've been compiling this year while listening to these playlists. All of these songs are from my personal cd collection of purchased music and offered to you, personally, as my friend, and a friend of free radio. Besides cash, you can donate your old tape decks, CD/DVD players, LAPTOPS, recording equipment, whatever (translation or web skills).

Why should poets care about free radio? For one thing, free public access radio is the only place you will ever hear poets and poetry on air.

Scroll down to read more about Project Tupa (Transmitters Uniting the Peoples of the Américas), currently in Oaxaca, Mexico offering 2 5-day workshops to about 12 communities each where they learn how to build their own 40 watt radio transmitter along with antenna. They are also setting up permanent training centers in Mexico, and need your help. Your donation goes a long way to providing these communities with the means to communicate, educate, entertain and preserve their cultures and languages. TUPA is the Mixtec word for a mountain forest Spirit, an ethereal entity much like radio waves.

Some of you might have been moved by my poem, "Coffee", about the massacre of 45 peaceful Tzotzil people in Acteal, Chiapas on December 22, 1997. I know how hopeless and helpless it feels, sometimes, but here is something that people are doing with a real effect and tangible result to help the survivors directly. Help preserve free radio which may help to preserve lives. Help keep the air waves free to help keep people free. Let a thousand radio stations blossom! Maybe yours? Go to their website to purchase a DVD or view the video about the project which includes footage from Acteal. NPR has refused to air my poem in its entirety, airing snippets or refusing entirely to broadcast it after it was recorded for that purpose as was the case for Democracy Now when my poem was recorded during a performance at Naropa for broadcast, then never aired.

Spend the summer in the Bay Area and volunteer or attend one of their week-long Radio Camps where for $150-$200 you can buy a kit and learn how to build it, then use it or donate it to an impoverished community. Go to the Project TUPA website for a calendar of summer workshops (I might go on my birthday) or for information on how you can host a Radio Camp for your own community and community station wherever you reside. You can also purchase a book about Free Radio, order kits and download a guide to Free Radio, written in comic book form.

PayPal donations will reach them quickly and directly. You can also send checks made out to Project TUPA/Global Exchange for tax deduction. Just drop me a line at PoetDee(at)mac(dot)com with your shipping address and dedication info in case you'd like me to sign them personally or dedicate them to your Valentine's sweetie along with a description and date of your donation. These CDs are one of a kind, a Lorna Dee Cervantes collector's item, fo'shure: what I've been listening to incessantly while writing all these hundreds of poems these past couple of years while on the blog -- and compiling my own "playlist" of love poems for this new book, Una poca de gracia / Bit of Grace. Be the first one to get a copy of this version of the manuscript (unless you donated to Alfred Aretaga's heart fund earlier). Literary historians and critics take note. Your girlfriend, wife, boyfriend, husband, sister, brother a Lorna Dee or poetry fan? Surprise 'em with this unique gift - instead of corporate candy and poisoned flowers. Send today and I'll try to ship the cds to you as soon as possible, in time for your own personal love celebration. Provecho!
