9:00 am - The Thanksgiving Show, From Christopher Kimball's Milk Street Radio.
We’re celebrating Thanksgiving with friends old and new. Andrea Nguyen shares her family traditions, inspired by the Vietnamese Moon Festival; pie experts Chris Taylor and Paul Arguin put a new spin on classic desserts; Grant Barrett and Martha Barnette give us a language lesson on Thanksgiving Day; Rachael Ray, Maneet Chauhan, Maangchi, David Lebovitz and more chefs, authors and friends recount their Thanksgiving tales of disaster, culinary wisdom, and family memories; and Dan Pashman breaks down the pros and cons of hosting a virtual Thanksgiving.
10:00 am - The Pulse: A 2020 Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving usually means we’re going big — way over the top. Twice the size bird we could possibly eat; more side dishes than the table can hold; and, of course, so much pie. But so many things will be different this year because of the pandemic. Our celebrations will be smaller, and our travel plans limited. We’ll try to be grateful for what we have while feeling the pain of all we have lost. We hear stories about the neuroscience of gratitude — and how it can help us through grief, how the pandemic has impacted our food systems, and what people are doing to stabilize the supply chain. We also make a visit to a multi-generational cranberry farm and hear about a tough decision over whether to cross state lines — not for turkey, but for love.
11:00 am - Getaway – Your Holiday Travel Special
The nasty virus has kept many of us locked up more than we wanted. Here's a way to get away safely with AN AUDIO TRIP that takes us on a musical journey through the past, present, and future accompanied with facts about traveling by plane, train, car, boat, spacecraft, and even on foot. You'll hear music from Top performers of the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and 2000s such as The Seldom Scene, Tom Paxton, Barbra Streisand, Christopher Cross, Crystal Gayle, The Front Porch String Band, Kathy Mattea, Simon & Garfunkel, and tons more, including music from TV, movies, and Broadway.

12:00 pm - Thanksgiving Special-Friends Giving (2-Hour Special)
For Thanksgiving, hear a series of songs from fantastic albums that are all about gathering together in appreciation. There’s a trend that’s catching on, and I admit to being a little late to the party on this, but the celebration of Friends-Giving is a really cool thing, and a way to communicate thanks to friends outside of the family line. That’s what I want to do this week with you right here. I appreciate the connection you give me and for you spending a little bit of time right here with me each week. So this time I have a collection of some of my favorite albums from the past few years, many of them new releases. Indie singer-songwriters Calexico & Iron & Wine, Samsel and the Skirt, Brandi Carlile, and Andrew Belle on the way plus alternative’s Augustana, Blues Traveler and more.
7:00 pm – BEAT LATINO: Gracias! Thanks Giving Music
Beat Latino, hosted by Catalina Maria Johnson, celebrates in every hour a different facet of the extraordinary diversity of the Latin/Latino musical universe. From banda to bachata, and salsa to sevillanas - this special edition of Beat Latino presents songs that give thanks to accompany the holiday. Not your usual pilgrim fare! Rather, songs that include the word "gracias" and celebrate life, love, and music. Broadcasts nicely in November.
8:00 pm - Global Village Thanksgiving Special
Global Village serves up a feast for the holiday with songs about food. On the menu, Rice, Red Beans and Turnip Greens, Sweet Pumpkin, Hot Cross Buns with some Frim Fram Sauce, and other musical delicacies.
9:00 pm - Feasting with the Great American Songbook: An Afterglow Thanksgiving Special
It’s Thanksgiving, so take a seat at the dinner table with Afterglow, as we explore classic jazz and popular songs about food by singers like Louis Armstrong, Louis Jordan, and Fats Waller.
10:00 pm – Full-Time Blues Thanksgiving Special
It's an impressive spread of food-themed tracks for your holiday season soundtrack, with all but two of the songs coming off 2015 releases - an impressive feat for a themed episode. We were fortunate to even have a featured selection from "Johnny's Mailbox" that fits right in with the Thanksgiving topic. "Mama's Cookin'" comes off the new album by Brad Vickers & His Vestapolitans. The new CD, That's What They Say is available now.
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at KRCB FM Radio 91!
