Bon Mot

Bon Mot — a show of poetry, the spoken word and all things word-inspired, hosted and produced by Rick Agran. Writers of all stripes (poets, short story crafters, novelists, playwrights, comics, creative nonfiction folks, collagers, prognosticators, biographers, and storytellers) share the literary arts, intertwined with topical musical interludes.

We passed a small town in the night on the way home from Dancing Rabbit community in rural Missouri.

The program broadcasts live on WGDR 91.1 FM on Sunday evenings from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Bon Mot streams world-wide on WGDR.ORG and is archived for two weeks of on-demand listening enjoyment. WGDR Plainfield and WGDH Hardwick are Pacifica Radio affiliate stations. WGDR receives support from Goddard College, the surrounding community and local underwriters and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

WGDR’s mission describes it as “small, but mighty station… the most rare and precious of resources in a media landscape overrun by corporatized, mainstream propaganda and sensationalism. The preservation of this community station is a responsible action we can share here in Central Vermont, but also one we can share with the world.”
