Rock Roots Radio Show - Spike Hawkins Tribute
The award winning team behind UYC Experience present this week's episode of Rock Roots Radio.
Spike Hawkins was part of the poetry scene in LOndon and Liverpool during the 1960s and much of his output upholds the values of that group; short, modernistic, humorous pieces of free verse. He was published in various outlets and publications including 'Children of Albion'.

With readings from Spike Hawkins of his most famous poems.
Of course, the show is punctuated with great music from PInk Fairies, Syd Barret, Pink Floyd, Cream, The Family and plenty more
