World Poetry Celebrates AUDREY P. FRANKLYN!

 

 

Ariadne’s Notes: On August 10, 1-2 pm on CFRO 100.5 FM, we had the privilege of welcoming   a “Living Legend” Audrey P. Franklyn  who has had a fascinating career and still continues. Her stories about how she got started and went on to tremendous heights was memorable . Unique creativity and hard work, exploring new possibilities all were a major part of her success. Audrey also spoke about her long term relationship with Ella Fitzgerald and others. The stories made for a fascinating interview. From the feedback of World Poetry participants, the interview was really meaningful to them.  As I move into the field of promotion, especially for youth, the program was also very meaningful to me. 

Thanks also to the special Tech Kerry who took Victor’s place and to special volunteer Sharon Rowe who helped make the show possible.

We also featured our advisor and long term friend from Mongolia  Dr. Hadda Sendoo with his e-poem The Wind from The World Poetry Almanac and music from our partners  Braitwaite and Katz Communications with the lovely voice of: Daniela Schachter, CD, A tribute to Jimmy Van Heusen.

World Poetry would like to welcome a new listener from Guam, making a total of 98 countries.

The World Poetry Cafe on August 10,1-2 pm PST  on CFRO 100.5 FM  interviewed AUDREY P. FRANKLYN, President of the Franklyn Agency.

Ms. Franklyn, known in media circles as “The PR person with clout”, started her career with KLAC Radio in 1957, where she first became familier with the media world. She established the Franklyn Agency, a PR/Production firm, in 1960 and went on to promote, for herself and other production companies, 150 one-nighters and theatrical runs, from the dorothy Chandler Pavilion and the Westwood Playhouse to massey Hall in Toronto and Carnegie Hall. Among her exclusive clients is Ella Fitzgerald, who became Audrey’s client in 1966. 

She can be contacted through her FB page, Linked In  and on the internet.

Ms. Franklyn has promoted hundreds of personalities, agencies and institutions during the past 25 years. She is listed in Who’s Who of American and Who’s Who in California, and hosts her own TV talk show,

“The Franklyn interview”, which has aired for 26 years on group W Cable in Santa Monica; it airs every Friday night at 11 p.m. The show features a well-known media personality as co-host, such as Gene Ferguson, News Director of KZLA Radio. Because it has been so well received, The Franklyn Interview is now syndicated and is re-aired on both Public and leased Access stations.

The Franklyn Agency also produces commercials for cable TV.

 A call in  from Boston  ( courtesy of Braitwaite and Katz)  at 1:40 pm, PST from Patrice Williamson with her new CD: Comes Love, a lovely CD featuring her silky voice . April 25, 2017 will marked the 100th anniversary of an event that would have a profound impact on jazz and American song: the birth of Ella Fitzgerald. While the centennial of the First Lady of Song will doubtlessly be celebrated in myriad forms, few will prove as heartfelt or sincere – or as long in gestation – as Comes Love, the new album by Boston-based jazz vocalist Patrice Williamson. For the occasion, Williamson teamed up with guitarist and fellow Berklee College of Music faculty member Jon Wheatley for a set that pays particular homage to Fitzgerald’s landmark duo with guitar great Joe Pass. 

Due for release on Ella’s birthday, April 25, on Williamson’s own Riverlily Records and produced by pianist/composer Helen Sung, Comes Love features a dozen Songbook classics originally either recorded by Fitzgerald and Pass on one of their four studio albums or performed live by the duo during the course of their notable collaboration. Williamson and Wheatley never resort to sheer imitation (not that such a thing would even be possible given their two inimitable models), but instead conjure the warm elegance and graceful swing of the originals through the alluring chemistry of their own inviting rapport.

Featured Poem:

DeBolt

He comes out

Final race

 

Men’s 200 M

To win gold

 

7 Olympic gold

To his name

 

Here to collect

Two more gold

 

De Grasse runs

In lane 4

 

The crowd roars

At Bolt’s name

 

He takes his hand –

Shushes the crowd

 

Gun sounds off:

Bolt in lead

 

Flash of red shoes

On the lane

 

He wins the race

With ease:

 

Bolt 200 triple

Going for 9 gold

De Grasse wins silver

 

De Grasse and Bolt –

Two great runners:

 

DeBolt will always live on

Forever. Olympic history

 

A piece of Bolt

Lightning strikes

 

Little brother from Canada

Best race already written

 

Victory lap for Bolt

With Jamaican and Brazil flag
