Can You Hear Me

We start digging at the bottom of the rabbit hole.  This week features a 1968 self released psychedelic pop album by a drag queen, a sort of DIY Kate Bush-like obscurity named Rebecca and a child singing a country song asking his mommy to stop being a stripper– and that’s just the beginning.  Dig deep, my friends.
