How "Marijuana, the Devil's Flower" may have sounded like in 1951, as heard on Shortwave Radio, inside a Bomb Shelter

Spoken Word with Electronics is an audio series delivering to you a two side recording of unusual stories paired with vintage modular electronic sounds

Welcome back. A few years ago, in 2010, the radio station WFMU posted a wonderful set of songs on its incredible blog.

Both songs had the identical title, "Marijuana, the Devil's Flower", or "MTDF" for short. I fell in love with both of these tracks and have pined for an opportunity to do something fun with them. For this week's program, hear MTDF turned into a shortwave radio broadcast signal, using an RF Nomad and an AModulator. Then hear MTDF looped oddly through a set of samplers. Here's a set of soundcloud links:

I was going to call this one "The Bong Bunker" but thought better of it.
