What is DREAMA? And why? And how?

Find me after the show and I’ll give you the long answer. But for now, I can offer the short answer: Dion McGregor’s incredibly detailed, nuanced, and often outrageous somniloquies were recorded by his roommate from 1961-1967. Some of the recorded dreams were released on LP in 1964, and 2 additional collections were released in … Continue reading
