Fifty years ago this month, a San Francisco municipal court judge ruled that Allen Ginsberg's poem "HOWL" was not obscene.

Last week a public radio station chose not to broadcast a 1959 reading of the poem due to fear of an FCC fine.

You can listen to an online broadcast of the poem at HOWL Against Censorship.
