DJ Scott: It’s always 4:20 on Radio Gen1us, and this week I’m bringing you some songs that are under the influence.

Listener Problems Sought!
I’ll be providing boundless wisdom and brilliant advice in my future Dear DJ mix. I need you to send me your problems, so that I can address them in words and, more importantly, in song. I liked the Long Distance Dedications mix so much, that I thought this would be fun. Your problems can be real, fictional, serious, funny, first-person, third-person, anonymous, whatever. Just send them over to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll turn your life around. Please make your letters similar to the Dear Abby style, but maybe less wordy. Several examples can be found here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/linkset/2005/03/25/LI2005032502583.html
