February 5, 2014: William S. Burroughs Centenary/Centennial

American writer/painter/performer William S. Burroughs was born 100 years ago today. And if you wonder why we do a blog post on him here on music-minded Radio Dupree it is because he made an impact on more than one of the artists featured on this station. (Cue: Burroughs -> Naked lunch -> Steely Dan or why not Frank Zappa ->The Talking Asshole.)
We even have him on the playlist now and then.

For the quick Wikipedia bio we suggest you use this link.

And here's a couple more:
