Radio Poets 2017: Zelia Curtiss


A Rainbow"

Zelia Curtiss,  Junipero Serra Elementary

There is a rainbow in the sky

Making colors in our life

To be thankful you’re alive

Waiting to be held

Waiting to be in  your heart

Sunshine yellow is in your path up ahead

Your family is waiting here for you

Purple is the wind that blows you off your path

Red is the broken heart when your friends are fighting

Orange is the energy in me when your dancing with your friends

Green is the yummy coconuts

Up above my head in the palm trees that make me relaxed

Programs launched at KALW during Matt’s tenure as GM include the award-winning local newsmagazine Crosscurrents, the design podcast 99% Invisible, and the Spanish-language narrative journalism program Radio Ambulante. He helped create the station’s Audio Academy, a year-long program aimed at developing new talents in public radio, and led the first broad-based strategic planning process in the station’s history.
