Songs of Thanks, Grace And Remembrance

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

A favorite with listeners, this is our annual show for the day after Thanksgiving during which we explore general universal themes centered around the Thanksgiving holiday such as offering thanks and love and extending grace. This “Black Friday” program is designed to offer a bit of musical therapy to help deal with a world that is increasingly burdensome — and unnecessarily noisy — during the end-of-the-year holidays.
