when or how or why I started collecting records by female impersonators.
Maybe it was when a DJ pal gave me a promotional copy of a Charles

my brief and inglorious stint on the stage back in the late 70's.
But whatever the reason, the more I looked, the more I found.
I marveled as time went on at just how many female impersonators

such as the Broadway shows Sugar or La Cage aux Folles, since
even though drag is a fundamental part of their plots, their stars
were not known as female impersonators. There are, I suppose,
the occasional violation to this rule herein, but hey-it's my
One more thing-if you have
