King of Little Magazines

Here is a video of Arthur Godfrey sing about Charles Bukowski, the breakout star of the Mimeo Scene.

I am sure there are tons of songs related in some way to the Mimeo Revolution. One that sticks in my mind is The Beatles Paperback Writer, which was born out of Paul McCartney's friendship with bookseller to Swinging London, Barry Miles. Miles, I believe, managed Better Books (along with Bob Cobbing) and in late 1965/early 1966 started Indica Gallery (and later Bookshop)
