Radio M: Food glorious food- songs about food to celebrate Thanksgiving.
We are just days away from that oh so American tradition- Thanksgiving. So this year Radio M reached out to listeners to get their requests for songs about food. The picks cover the gamut: songs about chicken, beans for breakfast, junk food, a Brazilian side dish, hot dogs, vegetables and so more more. It's a musical cornucopia of edibles and a few cocktails.
