Series Title:
PRA Archive #: 

A listener’s personal view of alienation, sexual loneliness and prostitution. Carlos Hagen produced a couple of programs on loneliness and alienation in our contemporary American society and loneliness that leads to compromise. Hagen received much listener response, and the stand-out was this documentary montage of personal commentaries, readings, and songs produced by a listener, Dennis Wulkan. The recording conveys the scene of "taxi dancing" and "dancing halls," establishments of any big city where lonely men can go and for a fee, dance with "hostesses." Note on box "It is a sad and depressing documentary, but realistic portraying some of the loneliness and alienation that affects so many people living in the anonimity of a big city."
