November 17th EMFAB

In this week's show I celebrate peanuts. Songs by them and about them. Also, songs about people who sell them. The star of the show is The Peanuts, twins Emi and Yumi Ito, the Japanese vocal duo active from 1959 - 1975.
The star song of the show is 'The Peanut Vendor' (El Manisero) composed by Moises Simons in the 1920s-ish. This nut-based madness was inspired by hearing The Peanuts for the first time in many years played on Bodega Pop last week. Thanks Gary.
On a whim, I searched for how many songs there were about, or by, or mentioning, peanuts. Hundreds! Here is my pick of them, arranged in a relatively pleasing order. You can stream the show at Give The Drummer Radio HERE . You'll also find a complete playlist, with many links to the tunes I played.
