Bang & Jangle Radio Hour, Season 2, Episode 10: Home Cookin'

Louis Jordan
Last night's show was all about tasty licks and cheesy puns. Vamping off the Home Cookin' theme, I served up a fourteen-course meal of food-inspired songs. Here's the menu:

Beans and Cornbread - Louis Jordan
I've Never Seen a Straight Banana - the Happiness Boys
Come on-a My House - Rosemary Clooney
Everybody Eats When They Come to My House - Cab Calloway
A Chicken Ain't Nothing but a Bird - Nellie Lutcher
Eat that Chicken - Charles Mingus
If I Knew You Were Coming, I'd Have Baked a Cake - Eileen Barton
Alligator Meat - Joe Swift
Chitlin Cookin' Time in Cheatham County - Pokey LaFarge
Sukiyaki - Kyu Sakamoto
Call Any Vegetable - Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention
Fish in the Jailhouse - Tom Waits
Beef Jerky - Cibo Matto
A Real Nice Clambake - Carousel

Not the freshest tracks, because like I said on the show, singing about food is fast becoming a lost art. But come to think of it, I don't have to say "like I said on the show" anymore, because the Bang & Jangle Radio Hour will now be available for streaming! I was under the impression that copyright laws forbade me from posting the show after the initial broadcast, but now I have it on good authority, I was wrong. I'll update the old posts, but it's a time-consuming process so it'll be awhile.

That said, don't stop listening on Monday nights! There's only one show left this season before we break until January. Based on the phenomenal success of the Halloween special, brace yourself for a sleighful of weird Christmas tunes...

The Bang & Jangle Radio Hour airs Mondays 9:00-10:00 p.m. on Trent Radio, 92.7 in Peterborough, or online at
