Glad to hear it, Suzann; I'd heard about that occasion, and had always wanted to see it... had to pass it along, of course.

I enjoyed this. Straightway I sent it to my mother and father, who may remember the scene.

I always wanted to see how Kerouac actually 'handled' his words when spoken, to see what kind of a reader he was, what kind of a wordvoice, since he read his work aloud so rarely in public. He sure didn't disappoint; he knew those words in his soul. Kudos to Steve Allen, for enabling such a thing to happen on tv back in those uptight days.
