A favorite archive recording for Thanksgiving, this show is a poetic salute to the potato, featuring a variety of poets who read their tributes to this world staple. The poems are part of the larger collection, Spud Songs: An Anthology of Potato Poems, filled with works ranging from the reverent to the humorous by 97 international poets as varied as Eavan Boland, Diane Wakoski, Seamus Heaney, and late Royals pitcher Dan Quisenberry. The anthology is a benefit book---all proceeds are donated by the publisher Helicon Nine Editions to Share Our Strength, one of the nation’s leading  anti-hunger and anti-poverty groups.
