Even More Thanksgiving Leftovers
(Originally 24 November 2011)
It has become a bit of a tradition to put on a Thanksgiving show in the last few years, and while I didn’t want to break tradition, I knew I was going to be out of town for this year’s show. Given that I have recently become much more savvy about podcasting, and more to the point now have it in my own total control, this seemed like a good opportunity to be able to record and post a show and not miss a single minute of my holiday vacation. The result is this episode, which I am quite proud out.
I have to admit, which the theme isn’t very new, this one took some searching. Special thanks go out to DJ JustanotherDJ, who not only suggested the “Thank You” idea, but threw a couple of songs my way, too. I would also like to thank the Firesign Theater, for having a comedy routine for every occasion, all the listeners (it is Thanksgiving, after all), and Marla Pemberton, my partner is all things, and who was patient with me while I threw together this show. She is number one on my list of things to be thankful for this year, and she deserves no end of thanks.
But, more than anything, this is an entertainment-oriented show. No big ideas, no grand effects, and no fancy editing. Just songs about food, being thankful, and a little bit of funny to lighten things as we go. What more do you want on this particular grazing holiday?
We should be back to doing live shows again next week. I love each and every one of you. Thanks!
See ya in seven.
