The Ledge, Episode 34: Drugs

The illicit side of life has always been a part of rock 'n' roll, so here's two hours of some of my favorite odes to pills, powders, and other substances. This show does not necessarily endorse the thoughts of the performers, nor does it condemn those who may find these substances a respite from their dismal life.

This is the first podcast of yours that I actually downloaded, and I love it. Just thought I'd let you know.

It essentially is rock and roll if you include booze, but thanks for the remedial narrative, and yet another obscure list 'tunes'.
