A reappraisal of the career of Cass Elliot, formerly known as Mama Cass, of The Mamas & Papas.
For this week’s episode (#215), Andrea Cleary, takes the lead for a deep dive into the life and times of Cass Elliot, the late-60s singer who recently went viral when a Tik-Tok user used her song ‘Make Your Own Kind Of Music’ on a meme with Nicolas Cage / Pedro Pascal from the film The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.
The song’s virality has lead to a reappraisal of the legacy of the singer, whose established narrative can now be seen through a lens of fatphobia and unfair treatment of women in the industry and society at large.
Andrea takes us through her life and times on this fascinating episode.
