ABOUT THE FORMAT - "BY REQUEST"
I n most if not all of his performances David A. N. Jackson traditionally will set aside small portion of the evening specifically to take requests from the audience. “I use it as a gauge to see what works and which pieces speak to folks. I do my best to keep track of the pulse of the community and world in which we live, but I am not so certainly sure that I know all and everything. So leaving the ask option open is a way for those who are familiar with pieces that struck a chord months, years, a decade or more ago to introduce through request a selection or more of my work to some of the newer members in the audience. It is nice to see the connection that is made by those listening and to then hear the discussion and banter that blossoms afterward. It’s kinda like knowing and hearing an obscure blues, jazz, R&B, soul cut, or classic that you know you haven’t heard in a while or that the (corporate) radio (or DJ) overlooks in the regular and/or throwback programming. Yet, when you make that request… and the Dj or host plays your dedication request on the radio you realize that you have been responsible in affecting what others are now aware of, you have personally been satisfied, you have shown and expressed your own appreciation and support by the asking of the artists works; and bonus Bonus – You might have got that one dance in with someone special to a new ‘this will be our song’ song. That’s how it works with music and other forms of shared art. I just wanted to expand and utilize that energy and feeling with this reading a whole lot more.

I am submitting myself to my community audience as a jukebox, Pandora, or Spotify, experience of my works and creations. I know that some requesters will live out and speak out vicariously through my poetry, art, and works; and that is OK. For me the responsibility of the programming and message is on the community, the requesters, the communal audience; and in this one unique instance I Am the ARTIST sharing and presenting my artfFull and soulFull expression and Be-ing (without the cumulative question of my own overall intent).”
