Bukowski at Bellevue, 1970 (1 Viewer)

Hello Forum: I am the person who had the tape Bukowski at Bellevue in reel to reel form and sold it to John Martin at Black Sparrow. I was involved in Bukowski's readings at Western Washington State College and Bellevue Community College in 1970 when I was an undergraduate editor of Jeopardy Magazine in Bellingham. If you have any questions about the time I spent with Bukowski or the history of this b and w video, please ask me. I will tell you that the reel to reel video laid in the bottom of my underwear drawer for more than a decade until I contacted John Martin in the 1980's. Rob

At least you had the forethought to keep it. I've always been surprised it existed at all. I figured a college would re-use any tape it had (most TV stations did), or store it for a few years and then toss it in a dumpster when the format became obsolete.

So, good save.
