One Upon a Time in the Fields

Spoken word and poetry show hosted by journalist Amah-Rose.

Broadcasts from One Upon a Time in the Fields:

Once Upon a Time in the Fields, Vol. 12

Amy Key is a familiar and well liked face on the London poetry scene. Her work contains a kind of evocative aesthetic, very visual and beautiful. I was thrilled to get her on the show.

Amy runs The Shuffle at the Poetry Café in Covent Garden which runs on the first Friday of every month and performs regularly around London.


Amy also chose all the music for the show.

Once Upon a Time In the Fields, Vol. 10

They’re back this time with an American accent. Following a long hiatus Amah-Rose returns with New York based author Kyle Smith reading from his first novel ’85A’. This coming of age book, set in Chicago in the late 1970s to a background of a search for somewhere to belong and a punk rock soundtrack. Kyle Smith reads really well, a great listen to someone bringing their work to life.
