"Altered States" (WEDNESDAY, Dec. 7, 2005)

(Week 20)

When I discovered that the program I would be subbing for was titled "Berman & Parker Do Dope," a theme immediately suggested itself. Most of tonight's selections concern altered consciousness through self-medication of one form or another. Lest this be seen as an endorsement of a depraved lifestyle, let me assert that your host is chemically correct (except for the occasional swig of Pilsener) and does not partake of illegal substances whatsoever.

UPDATE: this broadcast is now available on Live 365, and here's the dope:
