In fast speech it can happen. At least for me. Otherwise, I'd use a more 'conventional' vowel.

Eeh gads!! Its *Peter* Ladefoged, NOT *Peder*! My mistake. As for transcription. Danish aspirated stops are just as lax as the non-aspirated stops, hence the transcription of /p/ as [b_h] with a voiceless [b]. -kristian- 8)
