Robert Anton Wilson on the radio



I love radio and I collect radios, and I did a recent posting on a Timothy Leary speech archived at a website for KRAB, formerly a community radio station in Seattle. In response, fuzzbuddy and Jesse Walker posted links to three Robert Anton Wilson radio interviews on YouTube, which I'm posting here, with descriptions.

KTAR-AM interview on the Mel Young Show, March 6, 1988. 44:03 long. 

Interview on KPFK, a Pacifica station in Los Angeles, July 31, 1990, 1:23:20 long.

Interview on KPFK, again, on Jan. 6, 1989, 1:18:38. 

Jesse adds, "I'll be there are more floating around on YouTube."

I wish I knew how to download these as audio files.

One thing I want to note is that none of these interviews are listed in the audio links listed on rawilsonfans.org. I'll try to get that fixed, but in the meantime, here are three interviews for you to enjoy.

Hi Tom,

For ripping audio from YouTube I use offliberty.com

Works great for audio or video. Just paste the URL and hit the 'off' button, wait a second, 'save as' and there you go.

I have around a dozen, or so, RAW interviews and lectures that I found on YouTube.

Thanks, I'll try that. Want to be able to record the interviews and then listen to the recordings in my car.

This is what I use for downloading the youtube vid files: http://keepvid.com/

Wow. KeepVid looks very cool. It has many more options than offliberty. Not too keen on paying for it, though. It's good to have options because copyright trolls are going after stream-ripping sites now.

I'm using an old Mac (10.4.11) that doesn't play online video or audio very well, so I download items of interest then delete when I'm done with them. Well, except for the RAW audio files and a few other keepers.

There's also a program called "youtube to mp3" which works pretty well...

On the K-TAR 1988 recording, at 17:32?

I think we know who that caller is?

Looks like a couple of the youtubes are no longer available
