About the programme
MCMC Spoken AKA Megan Chapman is a critically acclaimed performance word artist from Cornwall. Inspired by the rap music of Eminem at the tender age of 15 and using the media of poetry, rap, freestyle and spoken word, MCMC Spoken uses her diverse skills and interests to communicate views and visions of the world both as she sees it and through the eyes of others. Since leaving University MCMC Spoken has gone from strength to strength, carving out her reputation as a poet, working with local producers and rappers to make hip hop tracks, hone her freestyling skills and perform at spoken word gigs both locally and across the UK and Europe.
Her love of poetry has led her to collaborate and perform alongside many other accomplished poets, and in October 2015 her poems were published alongside other esteemed Cornish writers. One of her contemporaries, Anna Murphy of Kneehigh Theatre writes, “Megan Chapman’s poetry is heartfelt and rhythmic. Playful and political, her Art is in the right place.” What fitting praise for such a delightfully challenging artist!

It's done a lot: broadcast live performances of a local poetry group I belong to (Falmouth Poetry Group), broadcast radio dramas created by my students, interviewed local politicians (including me) on subjects of local interest and thus contributed to engagement in local democracy.Tom S, Falmouth
This station is great. I listen in my workshop during the day in New Jersey USA . Keep it up. Dave. Hope to visit there someday.Dave
I don't know how I found you, but I'm so happy I did. I listen to 96.1 online constantly. Love the variety of music and all the presenters. I'm in Eureka California and have been able to visit Cornwall once. I left my heart there and want desparately to return. Until then, at least I can listen in. Cheers!Susan
