enJOY A RIDE WITH THe DOORS on planet erstwild. 2-4pm. Snippets of convo, both the DOORSusual and some unusual suspects, song-wise. Leave the driving to us, man. If you lived through this, you'll live it again. If you didn't, you'll wish the past wasn't a damn dead cement-booted frozen thing and the future nothing but a big ol' tease before you scrape your knees in the summer after falling off a bike that seemed like your only ticket out of the self-confinement of childhood's intrusive lassitudes. In other words, if you have to ask, you're probably too late to catch the angel train, whether Woody Guthrie is a guest on the Daily Show tonight or not. Seriously, it's a nice ride to the other side and nothing like Oliver Stone's droll percy sledgehammer of a Hollywouldn't flick except in length, but size isn't everything unless you're unbounded for morning glory, afternoon delight, or evening the score, and who isn't these days?

4pm, it's our regular segment INSIDE THE HEADLINES with Newsvandal JP Sottile. For complete list of topics, click "Read more" below.
