So many interesting intersections within this selection, a worm hole for those of you fascinated by connections. I will give you one line to whet the appetite. Elizabeth Frazier at no.1 is singing a song written by the father of her dead boyfriend, who features in a song above. It’s a twisted world we live in… six degrees of separation and all that jazz.

Dale.
