Episode #84: We’re Gonna Tell You How It’s Gonna Be

A jazz take on “My Fair Lady”. Frankie sings about his daughter—or so he thinks. We have divas and indie pop and regular pop, we have fiddle music, we have jazz, we have bluegrass. We conclude your instruction in hipness, we fight the law, and somewhere in there is a bunny. And much more. Like always.

We’re sure that you’ve never heard some of this before, and that you’ll like it. Would we lie to you, honey?
