Let's Take a Trip

The Acid Test

In 1967 members of the Merry Pranksters and the Grateful Dead joined with Ken Kesey for a super acid trip in San Francisco. A microphone was in the middle of it all and the resulting recording represents a condensed portion of the twelve hour acid trip. While the trip starts weird, with an uncharacteristically square KPFA reporter asking Kesey off-the-wall questions while he’s just beginning to feel the effects of the drug, stick around, it’s a good trip!
