William S. Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg, In Search of Yage (1975)

Ginsberg talks about them (with host Charles Ruas) and Burroughs reads from them - the Yage Letters, an extraordinary correspondence from Mexico in which the seeds of Burroughs' seminal stories would grow. Originally broadcast on WBAI-FM in New York in 1975, for a series produced by Ruas. Ginsberg's commentary is must-hear listening for anyone interested in contemporary literature.
