    I think the boss suggested that maybe Bukowski.net might support by adopting a tape.

    Anyone want to pitch in a few bucks and adopt this tape?

    Now might just be the time.

    I'm in for a fiver.
  4. Doesn't look like Bukowski is "adoptable," http://pacificaradioarchives.org/support/adopt.php.

    Though no one has adopted it in the past, so maybe they could make it eligible. Seems like they could have made more than $250 by keeping it for sale rather than a free download, but hey, it's their station.
  5. Thanks a LOT helmer!

    so ... IS it adoptable?
  6. I suppose that if we came up with $250 and sent it to them saying we would like to adopt it, they wouldn't turn it away.

    Sort of like a gesture.

    So, not a real adoption, but more like where you get a handwritten letter from a baby in Africa telling you what it did at the saw mill that day with a finger painting enclosed. That kind of adoption.

    I'm in for five or ten, or whatever.
  7. I don't think we can come up with 250,-
    but I'm in with ten too.
  8. I finally listened to this reading today (I'm too damned busy all the time) and it's by far the best Bukowski reading I've ever heard. He's very strong here. Relatively young. Sounds stone sober. And he's making a serious effort to read well. Very strong early poems. When I saw him read at CSULB, he read some of the same poems, in the same manner. He's not yet the rock star here, and not drunk, with no heckling crowd, so there's no theater. Just the poems and him presenting them as well as he can. It's much better than I had hoped for. Classic Bukowski. Free download, so how can you go wrong?
  9. Awesome, thanks for the download link!
  10. Did I mention this early reading is fairly dripping with intelligence. Bukowski is very sharp in it. You can sense his huge intellect looming there between the words as he draws out the phrases. I think at some point he stopped taking the readings seriously, realized he didn't have to even try -- that he had his audience in the palm of his hand, and at that point he began faking his way through them, roaring and fumbling and grumbling, and the crowd loved him anyway. But in the early readings he was making an effort and it shows (or rather, you can hear it).

    I'm downloading it right now. How do we make our contributions? I'd like to send a tenner to the cause.

    Thanks, Father Luke, for the link. I couldn't figure out how to get to the home page from the archives. Also, I was hoping there was some way of telling them which one I was supporting. But supporting their entire effort is worth the ten.

    Great resource. Thanks HelmerO8!
  16. Seems they took the free download off their website. Does anyone have a digital copy they can post, or a link for one? I will donate to the station, but it is far less wasteful of resources to download an mp3 than to have a CD made and shipped. Thanks.
