Streaming Audio: 2000+ Digitized Audio Cassettes From Allen Ginsberg Collection Now Available Online From Stanford Libraries

From a Stanford Libraries “Digital Library” Blog Post by Geoff Willard:

These recordings represent a staggering amount of primary source material associated with the Beat Generation, the bulk of which date from the 1970s to 1990s. Once the open reel recordings and videos are completed, we’ll have one of the most comprehensive recorded outputs from a single cultural figure available for the whole world to access.

The full list of items can be found here. Here’s an afternoon breakfast table conversation between William Burroughs and Ginsberg to get you started.
