About the show
Shy words hiding in forgotten corners come out smiling when they hear that 'The Word' is out and about. This weeks' guest is Paul Eccentric, story-teller and Anti-Poet. We discuss the ins and outs of giant publishers, the down and outs of real bookshops, and the ups and downs of being a performer. Also readings from Paul Eccentric, A.A.Milne, Adrian Mitchell, Thomas Moore, Brian Patten, Michael Rosen, E.J.Thribb (cont'd p.94)and Peter Ball, the host.
