Poetry editing & my manuscript on the radio

I've been working on a new book manuscript. With contests in mind, I've elected to have it professionally edited by a poetry editor. As it turns out, he'll be interviewed on a poetry radio show tomorrow. Bryan Roth, Executive Director of the Colorado Poets Association, will use my manuscript and one or two poems from my new manuscript to illustrate the principles of editing a book-length poetry collection.

The show is Dona Stein's half-hour Poetry Show. It airs Sunday on krfc 88.9, streaming live at 5pm Pacific Time, 6 pm Rocky Mountain Time (where it originates). It should be a good discussion of editing and revising poetry. This opens to a link for listening in:
