Vote for November’s Search and Recover Special

Voting is open until November 20th!

November’s Last Tuesday Treat will be a Search and Recover Special, where Wonderland will feature one hour of covers of a song chosen by the listeners.

The first contender is Gordon Lightfoot’s 1970 song “If You Could Read My Mind”, whose popularity was such that his record label retitled his 6th album to capitalize on the single’s success.

The second option is “Groupie (Superstar)”, written by Bonnie Bramlett and Leon Russell and originally recorded by Delaney and Bonnie in 1969. If you’re unfamiliar with the original, that’s because it flew under the radar until The Carpenter’s released it as “Superstar” in 1971.

User the poll below to vote for the song, and then tune in on November 24th for the Last Tuesday Treat!
