Anonymously penned Jefferson Airplane-referencing perma-controversial purported diary of a sixties teenager, pretty much your average football-team-captain-lusting-after girl next door until she was slipped some crazy acid courtesy of a spiked drink, causing her to ‘see’ the evil radioactive waves in jello pudding and consequently slide into depression, schizophrenia and ultimately overdose-assisted suicide. Presumably originally intended as a cautionary tale, its lurid ‘square’s eye view’ of lysergic imagery made it into an illicit cult favourite with adolescents in search of risk-free literary kicks, and can still be found in large quantities in university halls of residence to this day. Also inspired a TV Movie adaptation starring – haw – William Shatner.

Creamguide's Pick of the Day
This sounds right up Brucie’s street and we’re really looking forward to it. The concept is that Brucie is joined by the stars of today who will be paying tribute to their influences, so Jon Culshaw will be channelling Mike Yarwood and Jason Manford reflects on Les Dawson, though perhaps the most interesting guest is Ben Miller who’ll be joining Brucie to recreate his famous sketch with Norman Wisdom. They’ll doubtless also be plenty of opportunities for Brucie to sing, dance and do some comic crosstalk so it’s a must-watch, we’re certain.
