Listener Robert:

There really was nothingwrong with Quaaludes. They got taken off the market when their maker was found to be taking into acc't their diversion onto the black market in projecting their sales. Rorer then retroactively withdrew their application to market this drug, which then reverted to "new drug" status (i.e. unapproved). That meant that generic versions of methaqualone resting on same such as Sopor were taken off the market too in the USA. Nobody ever determined the drug to be defective in any way, they were just withdrawn because of their popularity.

Also, keep in mind that the dose used to "abuse" a sleeping pill like that is LOWER than the prescribed dose to put one to sleep. So it's not as if the diversion of the drug to other purposes was endangering people's health.

Listening to it now, I realize it was atrocious only when & because I sang it. Interesting that the entire recording makes no audio mention of the candidate. There's a talkover instrumental segment in the middle which presumably is where one would put the pitch for Buckley.

@Mark and @The Blodwyn Pigg. Tull, Blodwyn Pigg, and Traffic were the bands

I was very disappointed when Harold Ramis left SCTV, but overall the show's quality didn't suffer in his absence. Ken Freedman resembled him in my mind, partly because of voice & looks, but partly because Ramis played SCTV's station mgr., albeit using a character, Moe Green, that he'd developed earlier & elsewhere.
