I recently re-heard a great broadcast of "Selected Shorts" doing bits of Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, by Hunter S. Thompson. I won't go into HST and how I got into him here (the first thing I read was Gonzo Papers II, actually) but suffice it to say he's one of my favorites.
This hour-long program has some good reads of his work, and an old colleague doing a spot-on impersonation of Hunter's snappy speaking style.
Selected Shorts: Hunter S. Thompson
The only music I can put with this, is, of course, Sympathy For the Devil. I'd get it on maximum volume on an endless loop if I could.
