Ginsberg and Burroughs and Buckminster Fuller

R. Buckminster Fuller
[Buckminster Fuller]

The WS Burroughs Archive has recently uploaded audio from the Feb 9, 1976 WTOP broadcast - "Nine In The Morning". Erudite breakfast television! Allen and Burroughs join futurist and visionary R Buckminster Fuller as the guests featured in a lively thirty-minute discussion on a topic that they fairly quickly get to dispense with – Thoughts on the American Dream. A free-ranging discussion. Everybody gets to have their say. Allen gets to read “Who Runs America?”, and concludes, chanting an "AH" mantra against "the claustrophobic capitalist universe". For more on Fuller, check out his Wikipedia entry here and the BFI (Buckminster Fuller Institute).
