Lorenzo W. Milam, writer, publisher


In addition to a radio creator and philosopher, Lorenzo Milam was a prolific writer, penning hundreds of essays in program guides for KTAO and KRAB. He left the radio world in 1977 to concentrate on creating literature. His writings were diverse, on culture, travel, philosophy, Buddhism, psychotherapy, life as a “cripple,” sexuality, among other topics. He wrote poems under an estimated 17 pseudonyms, never using his own name. He reviewed countless books, many times under the pseudonym Lolita Lark, for his print publication The Fessenden Review and his online journal RALPH.
