Tuesday September 26, 2006 with your host, Larry Miller

The Willie-Nelson “That’s Why They Call It Dope” show

[Insert Willie NORML PSA here]

* The comedy cuts heard during the first hour are from the 1968 Elektra album “A Child’s Garden of Grass”

“A Child's Garden Of Grass is an expanded audio companion to Jack Margolis and Richard Clorfene's book of the same name. Radio legend Ron Jacobs suggested the spoken-word adaptation to Elektra head Jac Holzman, who loved the idea. Margolis was hired to do the writing and members of The Firesign Theater, among others, to do the voice work.”

The Music:

Arlo Guthrie: “Comin’ In to Los Angeles”
New Riders of the Purple Sage: “Panama Red”

Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show: “I Got Stoned and I Missed It”
