It's time for my at least 25th annual Food Show. So on Tuesday the 24th, all of the songs will be about food or have a type of food in the title. It's my way of ringing in the holiday season so don't tune in hungry.
Tonight 11/17/09 on the Kitchen Sink, after some preview music for Stanton Moore's James Black gig at Chickie Wah Wah and Loyola, Neko Case, and Dan Auerbach/Justin Townes Earle, we'll put on a bale of jazz from 1959, possibly the greatest year of recorded music ever. Dig this list from which we will draw:
Ornette - Shape of Jazz to Come
Trane - Giant Steps
Brubeck - Time Out
I will include an hour tribute to Johnny Mercer on Jazz Roots to celebrate what would have been his 100th birthday. I will focus on Johnny as a songwriter and Johnny as a singer. Join us and learn more about this songwriting icon.

Thanksgiving is by far the nation's most boring holiday. Even the main event - gorging on food is compromised by the selection. Turkey' tastes like plywood and the second and third place finishers, potatoes and stuffing, are only edible if covered in gravy fat.
