Poet and Author Michael Shaeffer

Chicken Soup for the Frostbit Soul kicks off the Music in the Woods series. Get a preview with Alaska Live host Lori Neufeld and guest Michael Shaeffer, local poet and author. Stories and poetry that might make you laugh, cry and even recall cartoons of your childhood from his show and latest book of poetry "No Exit for Chickens". R2D2, Foghorn Leghorn, Yoda, Crusty the Clown, Tenzing Norgay and Junko Tabei all make appearances in the KUAC studio through the power of poetry.

Lori’s love for public broadcasting runs deep. She was raised on Car Talk, Morning Edition, Adventures in Good Music with Karl Haas, and later while studying wildlife biology at Bethel College in North Newton, Kansas, she realized that if she helped answer phones during the fund drive at KMUW, she could meet and chat with the hosts of locally produced shows.
