(Featuring songs about Turkey, Potatoes, Hiccups, and Food, Food, Food. Originally broadcast on 28 November 2009. Retrocast on 23 November 2016 as Mutation #26.1)
Join me as I explore an hour of music that I hadn’t gotten a chance to get to this year. Just after Thanksgiving there are always a number of leftovers lying around; things that you can’t finish in spite of your best efforts. This show covers that ground just as I was starting to think I would have to throw some stuff out.
Food is most definately on the menu for this one, and for that I would like to thank Isoceles Diego, who not only clued me into a number of the songs played during this show, but has been an inspiration to me for a number of years. He is the only person to have appeared on every incarnation of this show, as a Guest, DJ, and performer. While he was not in the studio with me during this one, much of the music was selected by, on inspired by, him.
All this food is making me sleepy. But one more slice of pie can’t hurt, right?
See ya in seven.
