Bang & Jangle Radio Hour, Season 2, Episode 3: Autumn Songs

This week on the Bang & Jangle Radio Hour I played a melancholy mixture of songs about autumn, in honour of Thanksgiving. It went something like this:

Dock Boggs - Turkey in the Straw
A Hawk and a Hacksaw - A Hack and a Handsaw
Tom Waits - November
Leon Redbone - Shine on Harvest Moon
The Scarring Party - Everything I Touched Caught Fire
George Winston - Autumn (Sea)
Luke Doucet - New Orleans
Hawksley Workman - Stop Joking Around
The Pogues - Haunting
Timber Timbre - Lay Down in the Tall Grass
Louis Armstrong - Autumn Leaves
Willie Nelson - September Song
Django Reinhardt - September Song
Chet Baker and Bill Evans - September Song

That's three versions of Kurt Weill's September Song, if you're counting. It seems like themes are just falling into my lap this month - I've already started working on an ultra-spooky extra special Halloween edition of the Bang & Jangle Radio Hour...

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