When my Uncle Laszlo's will was finally read last week, I became the proud recipient of his collection of classic '50s smut mags.

Many hours of reading pleasure await me, and listening as well. For between pages of the March '58 issue of Ontario Breastfeeder—hidden from the watchful eyes of Aunt Monique, no doubt—I found the CD pressing of Great with a Peanut Butter Sandwich and the original 45 of "Baby Beluga." My unc, it seems, was a closet Raffi fan. No one ever knew!
Raffi plays the Moore Theater at 2 p.m. Sat., Nov. 2. $21
