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
We’ve not heard much of Sally Traffic on Radio 2 since she moved to weekends, though we’re not particularly upset as we much prefer Bobby Prior, not least because she actually gets some of Simon Mayo’s jokes. Sally’s not been idle during the week, though, as here she is presenting this documentary where she meets folk veteran Peggy Seeger, sister of Pete, and they discuss whether political songs ever actually achieve anything.
