Since 2004 Plastic Crimewave (aka Steve Krakow) has used the Secret History of Chicago Music to shine a light on worthy artists with Chicago ties who've been forgotten, underrated, or never noticed in the first place.

  • The Possum River song "Stand Up and Meet Your Brother" appeared in season three of Stranger Things this summer.
  • The 1970 single version of "Girl You Make Me So Happy"
