Episode #86: We’re Alert, We’re Awake, We’re Aware

There’s more Blossom Dearie this week—we really do play her a lot—plus many, many cover tunes (we count at least eight). There’s folk and pop and country and jazz and many duets. So many singing sisters, and singing brothers too! Bob and Ray, Weird Al, and a favorite Jim Henson theme. And even more.

We don’t want to over-hype it but, man, we think you might like this.
