July 21: Fruit Songs
It’s summer — which means it’s fresh fruit season! Exactly which types of fruit depends on your location, of course. But people around the world love fruit so much, they’ve penned songs about cherries and mangoes and papayas and peaches. We’ll hear many such songs today…and if you have a favorite global fruit song, leave a note on the STG Facebook page, or call during the show at 360-867-5267. (Note: I previously did a show devoted to bananas, so we’ll let the other fruits shine this time around.)
