Tonight’s episode starts with a hoax. For at least a short time in the early 1970s, the hoax caused a media frenzy to descend upon a small backroad looking for a monster that would become known as The Cole Hollow Monster. The fact the Cole Hollow Monster was a hoax has been well documented, but when you dig a little deeper into the legends of something strange lurking along the banks of the Illinois River, one has to wonder could there be something more at the heart of the story. Thanks for listening! Our musical guest for this episode is West End Junction!

West End Junction is a folk rock duo from St. Louis, MO, comprised of Cara Ristau and Dan Ristau. The pair met in 2014 in a south St. Louis apartment jam session through mutual friends. Unable to stay away from the music that brought them together, they created the name West End Junction in 2019. Their music was heavily influenced by folk, Americana, and indie country. Known around St. Louis for their onstage chemistry, they can be found playing around town at a variety of local venues. West End Junctions upcoming first full length album, Out Here in the Plains, will be released on April 9, 2023. A year in the making, the album can be found on all major streaming platforms.
