Here are some radio snippets from the 60's about both The Grateful Dead and various drug busts. Below the links and file size/running time stats, I'll comment on why I like each file. Check these out and discuss. Please let me know if any of them don't work. One of them was acting up a little earlier as I was making this thread...............
ABC News Story - LSD 1.94mb / :50 Here you have a short news story about the LSD "problem". Some guy who is secretary of health education and welfare named John Gardener is asked whether making LSD illegal will impede on necessary research of these drugs. The guy says "no". Not too long after this, all research on psychedelics was shut down by the government.
Carnation Instant Breakfast Spot ? ?Turned On World? 2.42mb / 1:03 I love this little commercial. This is a really good example of how popular psychedelia had become in the late sixties. Here you have Carnation Instant Breakfast marketing hot chocolate to people by using psychedelic lingo like "turned on"! Imagine a world where peace, love and psychedelia is very profitable! It was a reality for a short while in the late sixties.
KRLA News ? Canceled Hippie Love-In at the Grand Canyon 1.62mb / :42 Here is a short radio news clip about a proposed "Love In" at the Grand Canyon being canceled at the last minute due to hesitant promoters and problems with food, water and everything else people need when camping out. This clip is especially interesting to me, because I had one of the greatest mushroom trips of my life at the Grand Canyon in 2001.
Various Drug Related Stories (KRLA Los Angeles) 2.14mb / :56 Here's a news broadcast about three drug busts. The first is about a couple who stole a car. Their poodle had a half-smoked joint in it's sweater( ). I love the way the broadcaster mentions the joint with disgust in his voice. The next one is about some guy who is caught with $10,000 worth of pills of some kind. The guy claimed he wanted to mix it with chicken feed in order to increase egg production. The third is about Drew Barrymore's father being busted for, get this, cigarette papers (used to roll joints). That's interesting because he starred in a anti-marijuana film called "Jack Arnold's High School Confidential". Perhaps being involved in that film was one of the conditions of his release?
Hippie Mother Kills her baby on LSD (KFWB, LA) 1.34mb / :35 Here's a story about a young hippie mother who stabs her two year old son with a broken wine bottle, while supposedly under the influence of acid. She was found to be legally insane.
