Series Two: Lansing Poetry Club Readings, 1982

This series contains digitized versions of a one-hour audio cassette recording the Lansing Poetry Club produced at Lansing Community College in 1982. The purpose of the recording, in part, was to memorialize deceased members. Both sides of the original cassette contained intro and closing music, and Side One includes a brief history of the club during the intro music. The music selections are not identified. Recordings are identified by the title of each piece and the author's name. In the introductory segment, narrator Jim Platte is identified as the producer. He states that 32 poets from the club either read poems or submitted their own to be read by him. Anne Hall Fishell and Elma Hodges served as compilers and editors of the poems included. Bob Clemens was the audio engineer. This series includes 90 audio files; four are begining/ending music and 86 are poetry readings. The collection does not include the original cassette recording but each side of the cassette was copied to an audio CD in .cda format. The files are date stamped 1994. These .cda files from the CDs were converted to .mp3 by CADL in 2017.
