The Rainbow Poems

The Rainbow Poems chats with Hope Radio 87.9 FM in Birmingham


On Tuesday 7th July 2020 at 8.00pm (BST) please tune in to the Ian Henery Show on Hope Radio (87.9FM or online by clicking here) for a wonderful interview with Lucy, founder of The Rainbow Poems.

Based in South Birmingham, UK, Hope Radio is not-for-profit that provides FM radio programs for the over 50s who do not have or do not desire to have access to the internet, to share experiences, to send messages to friends and family, to show their support for essential workers, to feel that they are not alone.

The poem and the spoken word are vital to the ethos of Hope Radio. On their website are lovely recordings of poets based in and around the UK’s second city and the Midlands region, a vibrant place for culture and the arts. What a great initiative!


“We are delighted to be working with Hope Radio, especially with our shared belief in diversity. The Rainbow Poems and Hope FM both welcome contributions from every race, nationality, class, gender identification, sexual orientation. All voices matter and are appreciated.”

– Lucy, founder of The Rainbow Poems
