Mashed Potato Time is all about the glory days of the recording culture that left us with stacks and stacks of forgotten 45s. Karin dusts off her favorite '50s & '60s singles for an all-vinyl show filled with carefree soul grooves, early R&B movers, dance crazes that never were, and, just in time for Thanksgiving — songs about food & gratitude.
