Songs of Thanks & Giving

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

It’s the night after Thanksgiving and an “unofficial” start of a holiday season that includes Chanukah, Christmas and New Year’s. Thanksgiving is a holiday of homecoming, offering thanks and extending grace. With this in mind, we explore several universal themes and offer the therapeutic ability of music to help deal with a world that is increasingly burdensome — and unnecessarily noisy — during the holidays.
