Sunrise Serenade: Beans And Cornbread - Plus Pledge Drive Special!

This morning's Sunrise Serenade was "Beans And Cornbread" by Louis Jordan and His Tympany Five.  It was probably floating through my unconscious this morning because it is on the playlist for tonight's Swing Shift Shuffle Fall Pledge Drive Special:  "Eat, Drink and Be Members" featuring music about food and eating.  I hope you will join me tonight and make a pledge to support WEVL.  Enjoy the video below from YouTube.
