Happy first day of the Minnesota State Fair! So many concerts, so many new foods to try, so many live broadcasts to take in.

The morning show crew is taking this weekend off but we'll be back next weekend when Jill broadcasts live from the MPR booth at the corner of Judson and Nelson (Judd Nelson's house) from 3 to 7 pm and then we don't know about you, but we'll be at The Current's Music On-A-Stick featuring Brandi Carlile with special guests Mavis Staples and Savannah Conley.

So for today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what songs do you want to hear that mention the sights, sounds and smells of the fair?
