Songs of Thanks and Grace

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

It’s the night after Thanksgiving and an “unofficial” start of a holiday season that includes Hanukah, Christmas and the ringing in of a new calendar year. Thanksgiving is a holiday of homecoming, offering thanks and extending grace. This show touches on those themes and hopefully provides the therapeutic ability of music to help deal with a world that is increasingly burdensome — and unnecessarily noisy — during the holiday season.
