Movie of the Week: Lester Bangs interview (audio only, 1980)

Today I'm trying something a little different. I have this audio-only interview of Lester Bangs as done by Sue Matthews for ABC Radio in Australia. May 13, 1980 is the date apparently. Its lengthy but worth a listen...

We could use more people with an opinion like Lester's these days, never mind writers (although we could use some writers even half as good as he could be). The audio skips & hiccups around the four minute mark until about 8:30. Don't worry, there's plenty else here to chew on.

By the way, that classic shot of Lester used in the video background is by the one & only Kate Simon.
