Correction: Island Tape

I am very grateful for Martin Nurmi’s appreciative remarks (Newsletter 40) about our audio-tape production of Blake’s Island in the Moon. I’m sorry to have to inform readers, however, that the assertion in the review that the tape is now available for sale is incorrect (and I hasten to add that the responsibility for this misinformation may well not lie with the reviewer). Alas, as with many worthy things done with too little money, the tape is frozen into a complicated limbo of rights, residuals, union stipulations, and the like. Mr. Cansino and I labor towards that happy day when all can have an Island that everyone will joy to hear, but we cannot now foresee it.

In the meantime the tape is authorized only for rental to noncommercial radio stations for broadcast purposes (the rates varying according to the size, character, and relationship to Pacifica of the local station). Readers with a cooperative college or community radio station at hand can have the station arrange a broadcast through Pacifica Program Services, 5316 Venice Boulevard, Los Angeles, California 90027.

My personal copy of the tape can also be sometimes loaned to substantial Blake gatherings; but it is beyond both my capacity and my contractual restrictions to satisfy personal, scholarly, or classroom needs. Again, alas.

Finally, it ought to be noted that we have come this far at least with partial financial assistance from the National Endowment for the Arts (on the genial principle that when empire puts money into art, such recognition encourages them to keep doing it).
