The Dope Tapes

This collection was recorded by Michael Aldrich from Bay Area television stations between the years of 1986 and 2006.  A fascinating "sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll" compilation, its major focus on drug-related news stories of the time is rounded out by segments on these other topics of interest to the curator. These videos were digitized from VHS tapes in 2014.
