Tuli Kupferberg, New York Poet

New York City lost one of its local bohemian heroes on July 12th. Poet, songwriter, singer and radical Tuli Kupferberg died at age 86. Throughout his long life he pushed and prodded at society and politics with his work. With The Fugs, a band he co-founded in 1964, Kupferberg specialized in breaking taboos through tuneful, energetic songs, but he also brought a lyrical, poetic sensibility to the group. Host David Garland presents some funny, provocative work by this indelible, quintessential New Yorker.
