Welcome to another mind-blowing episode of the Rock-N-Roll Twilight Zone as host Richard Syrett interviews SongMango founder Peter Wendel (and others) about Owsley Acid, the Grateful Dead, and the CIA’s key role in introducing LSD to the American public.

Other interview topics include: Ken Kesey’s Acid Tests; Owsley Stanley’s amazing engineering feat, the Wall of Sound; the Army’s interest in spraying LSD on the enemy during battle.

The audio may take a second to load, but it’s worth the wait…
