Thanksgiving Day - November 22, 2018

9a.m. Broadway Revue to Baste To
Verne Windham continues the tradition of a morning of showtunes to sing along with while preparing the feast. 

11:50a.m. Miller Cane
Hear the latest episode in Sam Ligon's serialized novel.

Noon "Let’s Eat” from Hearing Voices (also heard at 3pm on KSFC)
An audio Thanksgiving feast. We binge on fattening stories, then purge with a documentary on refusing food: Joe Frank describes a typically twisted family "Thanksgiving Dinner" (from his program "Pilgrim"). Scott Carrier tours a "Turkey Ranch," following the gobbler from farmyard to frozen food. Dean Olscher of The Next Big Thing goes "Chowhounding in St. Paul," searching for Hmong food, with cellphone assistance from the Chowhound, Jim Leff. And Annie Cheney offers a touching document of her eating disorder, "Concerning Breakfast" from Jay Allison's Life Stories series. .

2 p.m. Giving Thanks To Music
Few things mark a momentous time in your life, or recall a deep-seated emotion that stirs you to your core the way music does. It can stop you in your tracks, underscore a memorable day or change your life in unexpected ways. In the 2018 edition of Giving Thanks to Music, host Nadia Sirota, creator of the Meet the Composer podcast, invites several musical artists to choose a piece of music that illustrates the profound value that classical music has had for them in their lives.
