Dear Seamas and list
Thanks for informing us.
I am working on a special on his works to be broadcasted in my Radio
Program Burgerwaanzin @ Radio Patapoe Amsterdam NL, the last surviving
Free Radio from Amsterdam, The Netherlands
I am looking for links to obtain his live readings to broadcast them
along with others reading his poetry
Specifically I am looking to recordings of his infamous pieces for 6
tape recorders, other recorded material of his works is welcome as well.
If anyone on this list can be of help in locating and obtaining this
material, please do not hesitate to contact me
--Archive of previous broadcasts (allways in progress):
