A Season in Hell
Hell's Kitchen Radio #352: One Bourbon, One Joint, and One Pill
December 3, 2018 @ 8:00pm
Sometimes inspiration arrives in the strangest of moments. I was actually about three minutes late for my show tonight. Thanks to Dial-A-Shot for keeping it rockin' until I arrived. I quickly threw my first tune on, "Porno" by local SF funk-punksters Limbomaniacs (if you saw them back in the 90s then you know), and as I was contemplating my own porn addiction (tongue in cheek, folks, seriously), I thought about what other addictions people are known to enjoy. Hence tonight's theme: substance use!
Oh the joys of the holidays, when we look for any coping mechanism within reach. So whether it's tasty treat that is alcohol, aromatic marijuana, a psychedelic journey, cocaine blues, or maybe you're into the needle, this is the show for you.
Make this the holiday soundtrack your family didn't know they needed.
See you on the other side.
