Happy National Donut Day. Held on the first Friday of June each year, Donut Day was created by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the men and women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I. Around the offices here, we just can’t get enough donuts (and chicken) from Federal Donuts. With a location in West Philly at 34th and Sansom Streets – just a quick walk from WXPN and The Key headquarters – there always seems to be a regular calling for some a bag of hot donuts or some of their always delicious fancy donuts (we’re partial to the Grapefruit Brulee and the Chocolate Sea Salt). Since we’re big fans, and we know they are fans of music, we asked FedNuts partner Tom Henneman and the crew there to put together a Music To Make Donuts playlist for National Donut Day.

Henneman told The Key:

Feel Good Lost” by Broken Social Scene could be the entire list. Really gets you in the zone at 4:00 a.m. when you’re solo in the shop. Just you, the donuts and the glazes. Almost a spiritual experience.”

As awesome as FedNuts are at making the donuts, they put together a pretty happening music playlist. With four store locations including one in Center City at 16th and Sansom, as well as their new Port FedNuts at Spruce Harbor Park, there’s likely a location near you that we seriously suggest you swing by to celebrate National Donut Day. By popular opinion, they’ve brought back their classic Cookies & Cream donut for the day.

Check out their playlist below.
