Thought this might be of interest to Hollies fans: I found this description of a CD of anti-drug public service announcements from the 1970's. Bernie Calvert of the Hollies is listed as one of the musicians who participated (he is #21 on the list).



"GET OFF"
anti-hard drug PSAs from 1972-73: features 47 anti-drug PSAs from tons of musicians such as Alice Cooper, Jim Dandy, Mark Farner, Jon Anderson, Fleetwood Mac, Chuck Berry, the New Riders of the purple sage, the Eagles, Ringo, Greg Allman, America, Deep Purple, Steve Miller, Johnny Winter, Al Green, Dave Mason; Sha na na (singing "don't shoot up" to the tune of the oldies song 'don't hang up"), and many more. also includes anti-drug PSAs from the cast of the TV show "Star Trek", and Mel Blanc doing various cartoon voices such as Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny and Foghorn Leghorn. here is more info on this CD:

AN INCREDIBLE CD COMPILATION OF PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS FROM THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF PROGRESSIVE RADIO ANNOUNCERS CALLED “GET OFF” THAT WAS ORIGINALLY RELEASED AS TWO DIFFERENT LPS IN 1973 AND 1975. THIS CD COMBINES BOTH LPS ON ONE CD AND FEATURES INCREDIBLY RARE SPOKEN MESSAGES (AND SOMETIMES OFF THE CUFF MUSICAL PERFORMANCES) ABOUT THE DANGERS OF DRUG ABUSE.

That's a very interesting one! Half of those on the list probably had drug habits in the '70's but we'll not mention that Shocked Laughing

I don't know about a CD of it, but that was issued on LP in the '70s, I used to have a copy.

Dennis: Yes, it says that there were two different LPs released in 1973 and 1975, which were combined onto one CD.

James: I was thinking the same thing as I read the list Laughing

Yes, I believe Porky Pig and Daffy Duck were heavily into drugs. And let's not leave out Yosemite Sam, Bugs Bunny, and Foghorn Leghorn. That's all folks.
