Thanksgiving Weekend 2020 is in progress in Canada !

From a long running public radio show called “Blues Unlimited”...

Stream & Playlist - https://beta.prx.org/stories/86387

Blues Unlimited #172 - Playing With Food

Remember when you were growing up and your mom told you not to play with your food? Well, we're tossing that advice out the window, as we play with our food for two solid hours. We'll hear classics like "Strawberry Jam," "Bar-B-Q Sauce," and "Onion Rings," as well as "Candied Yams," "Cold Turkey," and many, many more.

NOTE TO RADIO STATIONS : This episode of Blues Unlimited is designed to be our Thanksgiving Special. However, since the Thanksgiving Day Holiday is not specifically mentioned anywhere in the program, it can also be run in regular rotation, as needed.
