This is Episode 23 in the 50-Episode series 'Midnight Voicejail' titled 'Endorphins'. The series follows the antics of a group of real-life voice mail box users in Silicon Valley in the mid-1980's to mid-1990's.

Note - This episode contains frank discussion about drug use and is meant for educational and information purposes only. Might be NSFW in tone and content. The Complete Radio Edit (which the player is cued to) is probably safe for terrestrial airplay in safe harbor hours.

In this episode: Mr. 1:15 opines about heroin (a chemical holy grail which he, nor as far as we know any other Voicejailers, ever did try fortunately enough) and his exposure to other hard drugs in his growing up environment in San Jose.

This is descriptive of the underground scene in Silicon Valley at the time. Also the Bay Area Representative (BAR) rants against Communism and Ronald tries to appease Joe Sledgehammer.

Player is cued to the complete radio-edit of the episode. The rest of the tracks in the playlist make up the uncut original broadcast version.
