In a letter to the Webbs, from 1963, that I just read in "Screams From The Balcony", Bukowski is talking about a home recording he made in 1962 for a radio station.
Is this recording available somewhere? Did anyone of you listen to it?I will send you a tape of a poetry reading of mine I made on my machine and which was broadcast over KPFK in August 1962. Of course, they deleted a lot of vulgarity, had to, so it is not quite the same thing I sent them. They asked me to come to their studios, which is like asking me to go to church with a hangover, so instead I mailed them what I had made in my room among the beercans, and they accepted it and played it over the air. Jack Hirschman's wife runs the literary and drama end of KPFK. Anyhow, when the thing finally came on over the radio ... at 11:15pm ... I was drunk and did not hear it, but somebody retaped it off the radio and I was able to hear it afterward.
