L.A. drummer Charles Wiley sent me a really interesting collection entitled “Corn Man”. Instrumental and jazzy, it’s a cool listen. I thought I’d expand on the food theme, to play a couple of my favorite records, the quirky and fun “Short Songs About Affordable Food” by John Curtis, and XTC’s classic “Oranges and Lemons” (The latter in my top ten all-time). I’ll also throw in a few food tunes in the middle of the show.
