What Kind of Food Am I? (5/20/17)


Jessica envisioned an Anthony Newley retrospective this week, while John wanted something you could more easily sink your teeth into – like food songs. So they combined their two ideas, serving up some Newley hits (like “What Kind of Fool Am I?” and “Who Can I Turn To”) along with a grape, a tangerine, one meatball, some Kentucky ham, wine, and of course shifafa on the side.
