Thanksgiving Dinner Set w/ carbon copy

A few months ago, my family came to visit me, and it was then the idea was born that me and my father should do a radio set together. I figured the Tuesday before Thanksgiving would be a good time for that (for travel reasons), and I gave my dad free reign on what to put on the set. He decided to make a set themed around Thanksgiving dinner and the progression of the night and foods you might eat. I love how creative he was with it and was very impressed with how all of the songs mesh together perfectly.

Without further ado, here is DJ GCarr’s Thanksgiving playlist:

  • “I Thank You – LP/Single Version” — Sam & Dave
  • “Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf)” — Sly & The Family Stone
  • “Be Thankful For What You’ve Got” — William DeVaughn
  • “Save The Bones for Henry Jones” — Nat King Cole
  • “(Do The) Mashed Potatoes” — James Brown
  • “Mashed Potato Time” — Dee Dee Sharp
  • “My Sweet Potato” — Booker T. & the M.G.’s 
  • “Sweet Pea” — Tommy Roe
  • “Yummy, Yummy, Yummy” — Ohio Express
  • “Cold Turkey” — Lenny Kravitz
  • “Mother Freedom” — Bread
  • “Long Tall Glasses” — Leo Sayer
  • “Apple, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie” — Jay & The Techniques
  • “Pecan Pie” — Golden Smog
  • “One More Cup Of Coffee” — Bob Dylan
  • “Goodbye” — Mary Hopkin
  • “Leaving on a Jet Plane” — Peter, Paul and Mary
  • “Take Me Home Country Roads” — Ray Charles

It was very fun to switch up what I normally play on my sets, and it really renewed my creative interest in what is possible for future sets of mine. The set is on Spinitron and Spotify.

Until next time,
