Del Shields, (Host) ; Frank Murphy, (Guest)
In 1968, the guest published a book entitled "The Frank Murphy Story: His Years in Florida Prisons, His Rehabilitation, and His Conquest of Alcoholism."

One caller asked about the use the drug Antabuse, which Murhpy does not suggest. The drug produces unpleasant side-effects when combined with alcohol. Another caller asks about the value of Al-Anon groups for family members, which Murphy does recommend. A young man wants to know about help for teenage alcoholics. A caller says she has read his book and she recommends it. Some callers are AA members who share their struggles and successes.
