Thanksgiving Radio Show

I won't be on the radio this Friday morning due to the holiday schedule, but I will be on Thursday from 9am to noon eastern standard time. I just got the motherload of crazy old food songs all of which I hope to play on Thursday. I even have some new hot dogs songs!!! Heaven. And wouldn't you love to hear Sammy Davis, Jr. singing "Plop Plop Fizz Fizz" or the Andrews Sisters' take on "One Meat Ball?" Well, I got 'em!

I just have to figure out how to get these songs off my computer onto a CD. I cannot seem to burn CDs, but I am hoping that I can burn through Itunes.

I hate my new computer.... it is so frustrating and depressing. This is part of the reason that my blog posts have been less frequent. If you are interested in a fancy new laptop running Vista, let me know. I'll give you a deal.

But tune into WXYC on Thursday. Food songs always improve my mood. Even if I don't get this new crop of food songs off my laptop, I still have lots to play. I wish I could find a song about bacon-wrapped hot dogs. Yummmmmm. My next mix CD will definitely be a collection of meat songs focusing on pork products.

Hey Charlotte,

Unfortunately, it is too late to return the laptop to get your money back (I check). However, if you give me a call, I bet I can help you solve the problems you are having.


Charlotte said...

Thanks Drew. But, I think what I might do is take it somewhere to get XP installed on it. I'll see how that works.

Weird Al has an album that collects all of his food-related songs. I think it's called "The Food Album".

Something for your arsenal?

(Includes the variation of Cyndi Laupner's song: "Girls Just Wanna Have Lunch.")


Charlotte said...

Yeah, I have a Weird Al song in the mix, but I have so many old R&B and old jazz and pop stuff, I think I am going to stick with stuff prior to 1960.

It's going to be great.

Maybe next Thanksgiving, I'll do a show about food songs after 1960.

RG & I listened to you this morning, but we got up kinda late. Any chance you plaid "Tall Drink of Water" by Barbara Mandrell? Prolly not, if you were doing pre-60's stuff. I am so disappointed that I tuned in right after you played "Food, Glorious Food." Because ever since you announced this musical mega-feast, I have been unable to get that song out of my head. And I only know like 2 lines of it...

Charlotte said...

Me, too, Maggie. Call me up and I'll sing you a different food song to replace that one. Happy Thanksgiving!!!
