WNJR : On the Lookout for Spoken Word

                    "Every spoken word arouses our self-will" - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

WNJR can be classified as a diverse radio station; with genres ranging from Jazz to Hip Hop. Our staff has now been working to expand the collection of poetry and spoken word in order to add to the diversity of our station.

Spoken word can be described as expressive words over a calming melody. It can be relaxing, emotional, and personal. Spoken word not only allows the artist to channel his emotions into musical form, but it allows the listener to emotionally connect with the music as well.

If you know of any good spoken word artists, or if you are that artist, feel free to email your pieces to passion@wnjr.org.
