(aired 10/2/09)

drinkFeeling thirsty? Today’s show should quench it! I started with just a couple song ideas for this theme, but thanks to the flood of ideas from other people, the playlist grew to a long list. The first songs explore the bare essential of H20, and then we move through coffee, tea, juice, milk, soda and a variety of alcoholic beverages. The songs in the last set explore the issues of maintaining sobriety. This show is one hour and forty-five minutes total. Cheers!
