Author Tom Robbins

Iconic American author Tom Robbins has long been a psychedelic figure in the literary world. Novels like "Even Cowgirls Get the Blues" and "?Still Life with Woodpecker" are poetic, irreverent cult classics for many American writers.

At our live event, "A Friend In Need," Robbins read from his memoir, "Tibetan Peach Pie." He also sat down with Sound Effect's Gabriel Spitzer and reminisced about his days hosting a weekly show, Notes From The Underground at local radio station KRAB-FM. We even share a few clips from a young Tom Robbins on the KRAB airwaves.
