I met Allen Ginsberg on June 12, 1994, when we sat down for a chat at the Tacoma Mall Office Building. I think it was Suite 85. Here are some of the excerpts from his answers on that day. The first link in each set is just the audio. The second, posts often featuring text of the interview composed the week before the 12th Ginsberg Marathon (2013).
