On November 5, 2021, Dan Armstrong of Mud City Press sat down with internationally known Merry Prankster and author Ken Babbs to talk about Babbs' new book Cronies: Adventures with Ken Kesey, Neal Cassidy, the Merry Pranksters, and the Grateful Dead. What ensued was a lively, revealing, and at times hilarious conversation with one of Oregon's most engaging writers and story tellers, not to mention Ken Kesey's best friend.

Listen to conversation:

The conversation includes the discussion of several other books by Ken Babbs, specifically his novel Who Shot the Water Buffalo, set in Vietnam during Ken's time in the Marines as a helicopter pilot, issue six of the literary magazine Spit in the Ocean, edited by Ken and focused on the life of beat generation legend Neal Cassady, and Last Go Round, a novel written by Ken Kesey with Ken Babbs about the first Pendleton Roundup in 1911. All stellar reads! (Click on book covers for locations to purchase.)
