A friend of mine's dad once sent in a poem to one of those song-poem places. He didn't even get a pressed record--got a somewhat wow-laden single-sided 10" lacquer cut at 45 rpm with the finished recording on it. He hated it....

I'm in touch with John Trubee, the ultimate Song Poem troll. He's featured pretty prominently in the doc. He's still making music and trying to sell it, but it's more in a sardonic, Frank Zappa-esque vein.

What's that BBC radio series where they tell real stories, but with actors - they're little radio dramas?
They did one based on Pauline Butcher Bird's book about being Zappa's personal assistant and another on Delia Derbyshire. They're rather corny in the style of an American soap opera, over the top and not too great acting.
