John Wieners: video of reading in San Francisco, March 25, 1990

new at PennSound


video by Kush / Cloud House. thanks to Kush and Bill Berkson for making this available.
50 minutes, introduced by Robert Gluck, interview with Kevin Killian follows.
I believe, as with the James Schuyler video PennSound released last week, that this is the only video of Wieners currently available on the web.
