Allen Ginsberg Tribute on KUCI

Irvine -- The KUCI public affairs program, "Subversity", devotes its entire program this evening to a tribute to poet Allen Ginsberg. The show airs from 5-6 p.m. on KUCI, 88.9 FM.

Ginsberg, who died Saturday in New York, revolutionized American poetry with his free verse form in "Howl". He was a blatant homosexual before it became "safe" to be one. And he put his body on the line for many political causes, ranging from anti-nuclear movement to the rights of pederasts.

Listeners are invited to call in to (714) 824-KUCI with their reminiscences. The show will feature excerpts from Ginsberg's prolific writings, and interviews with poet Robert Peters (a UCI professor), and with attorney Bill Dobbs, as well as remembrances of Ginsberg by show host Daniel Tsang, who, with Dobbs first met him in 1978 in Ann Arbor.
