When Sara Bir takes daily strolls though her neighborhood in southeast Ohio she keeps an eye out for delicious foods. These foods are all around us but most of us don't bother to notice them.

She finds all kinds of tasty things that are growing right out there in the open and many of these delectable treats end up as food for wildlife or they are wasted by being left to rot on the ground.

This week, we're examining songs about walking, from everyone from Aerosmith to Thelonious Monk to Ella Fitzgerald to Ernest Tubb, and a whole bunch of folks betwixt and between. Lace up, friends. It might even get silly, but first....
