Lock up your medicine cabinets, the sensational second episode of West Midlands Hospital Radio is here!
This week we dispense with the pleasantries, pump up the Valium, and pray that the drugs do work as we pick up prescription hits from all four corners of the rock and roll pharmacy. We've got more than enough high times, drug songs and mind-expanding sing-alongs to take the edge off the hurt for a couple of hours.
Your host Andrew Wolfman (me!) just says yes to music from Black Sabbath, Hüsker Dü, Huey Lewis (and the News!) plus, this being drug week, there's a proper tops-off, hands-aloft mega rave. (Don't worry, we'll warn you when the tops-off mega rave starts).
Also, there are some reasonably funny jokes.
Parental warnings: Strong drug references throughout, plus after 43m I call Ted Nugent "a twat". At 55m the band Drug Church really let rip and at 1h 54m there is some talk of the ITV4 TV show 'Tattoo Wankers'. On the plus side, if you stick around to the very end, there is a very funny joke about a horse that kids are just going to love.
