New guest-host Alice Sanders joins to talk through her feelings for both Tom Waits and Jack Kerouac as we venture into a Beat Poetry-influenced tale of the Southern Californian roads. Please note that, despite Sam's insistence, Diamonds On My Windshield does not appear on Nighthawks At The Diner - he's very sorry and will be more precise in future!
