Recently Callum Francis and High on the Air at HighTimes radio had a GREAT interview, and Todd was just his eloquent self as usual. Unfortunately, as usual with High Times, they can't just do it right, they HAVE to screw it up!!! You have to DOWNLOAD the entire program on MP3 1st and then STRAIN to HEAR IT!!!!! Arggh!!
So, for YOU, the smoker on a tight schedule, (or with no space to download)-------
Just the Todd McCormick stuff from High Times on the Air! None of the stoner comedy!
Also the audio was sweetened. Why HIGH TIMES couldn't do it correctly, why it took a Ganja Smoker with a personal Computer and BIAS' Peak 3.0 is BEYOND me!! But because of that, we tried to juice Todds audio, without altering it. While on the whole we accomplished that, certain sections, especially the section where Todd answers on what we can do, run hot, to the point of but not quite clipping! It sounds highly compressed, like a bad am station. We APOLOGIZE but we felt HEARING it was important!
Also, under the FAIR USE DOCTRINE for news and review, we review it HERE and it IS IMPORTANT News with a news value greater than stoner comedy. Please note it IS Copyright ®High Times High on the Air.
Why can't HighTimes do a SERIOUS SHOW in addition to High On The Air?? We have done one for 10 years HEMPTv does it better and POT-TV does it best! HighTimes with their subscriber base and ADVERTISER base SHOULD be doing MORE!!!!
While I'm kvetching, THIS IS THE YEAR to PUBLISH the HIGH TIMES CANNABIS CUP Scores!!!
HEY, wait a minute. I know I'm high but the LAST TIME I was here this page said something slightly different! Are you guys censoring material? Whats the deal?
CALLUM FRANCIS RESPONDS
Here's the Last bit of TODD News to read while you listen, but remember, you can still surf while Realplayer plays in the background.

The following letter from Todd to NORML explains the situation:
April 17, 2001
Ive not phoned because I cant! Last Friday I lost my phone use for six months because I sent a letter to Woodys (Harrelson) telling them to put me through to him wherever he is. They considered that an attempt to make a three-way phone call so to punish me they took away my use of the phone for six months AND 27 days of "good time."
Can you imagine spending a month in prison AND not being allowed to talk to anyone you love for six months simply because you intended to make a multi-line phone call?!!
So that is why I have not called in the past week. Its going to be much harder to stay sane without being able to just talk
If you would please start printing up the NORML news and snail mailing it to me so I can stay ?in touch?
Anyhow, I am going to appeal this insane punishment, but I doubt if it will change a damn thing.
Stay in touch! (please)
Please write to him. Send him cards and let him know that he is not alone.
