New Music Friday

Mitch Hedberg

Mitch Hedberg is like Nick Drake or Ernie Kovacs. Nick’s music and Kovac’s television show were miles ahead of their time.  And are always re-discovered my each succeeding generation. No one looked at the world quite like Mitch. George Carlin may have examined words like a surgeon but Mitch just took a word or phrase […]
