Like many, I've put in my share of telework hours from home in this year of COVID. One of the bonus aspects of this time has been the ample opportunities to listen to both a myriad of podcasts as well as music. I debated whether to subscribe to Spotify for the longest time, but never have I been so happy to have made that decision as I have the past several months.
It struck me during one otherwise insignificant workday that, despite the lack of usual topics to blog about, there was an opportunity to expand on a topic that I have on occasion blogged about: music. But my mind on this day went one step further: why not intersect the two fields? There's plenty of music about food, and Spotify is as good a source to figure out what's out there.
So thus, the Weekly Music Platter: random swaths of music about food that will be posted every or every other Friday for as long as I feel up to it. And with Halloween right around the corner, music related to this annual ritual of feeding that sweet tooth via your neighbors' generosity seemed perfectly appropriate. And reflecting that generosity, we threw in a couple extra treats for good measure.
