From Sam Sebren, "Listeners will hear a selection of actual answering machine messages from Pete, a heroin user for over 35 years, and also messages from his mother and various social workers, all of which paint a grim picture of the downward spiral which heroin often leads to for users, their families, and their communities. Heroin use is on the rise across suburban and rural America as well as in cities around the world, yet it's a topic that's mostly swept under the rug in family and community conversations. This program begins with a collage of clips from the past 3 years, taken from various small news channels and short documentaries about heroin. Expletives have been edited, however this program may not be suitable for small children. Produced by Sam Sebren, creator of the NIRRH for Wave Farm's Transmission Arts programming on WGXC."
