  • WUSF 89.7 – Turkey Confidential – Thanksgiving Day 12-2pm

    The Splendid Table’s annual, Thanksgiving rescue show for cooks!
    Francis Lam takes calls and comes to the rescue of Thanksgiving cooks and kitchen helpers during the biggest cooking day of the year! For 2020, the show will not be live this year – however, Francis and his guests will be answering questions taken ahead of time!

    Special guests this year include:
    Jacques Pepin, chef and author
    Samin Nosrat, best-selling author
    Mike Solomonov, Philadelphia chef
    Sohla El-Waylly, chef and restaurateur
    Nora McInerny, host of Terrible Thanks for Asking

    All Night Jazz on 89.7 – Thanksgiving evening starting at 9pm

    Mike Cornette will help you wrap up your day of food and festivities with songs about food on All Night Jazz! It’s a delicious 4 course, 4 hour food and drink themed extravaganza to wind down from Thanksgiving dinner… from Horace Silver’s “Home Cooking” and Charlie Parker’s “Carvin’ the Bird,” to Lou Donaldson’s “Gravy Train” and Thelonious Monk’s “Stuffy Turkey.” The desert course includes the wonderful – “I Like Pie.” We’ll top it off with Sarah Vaughan’s “Black Coffee” and then from midnight to 1 AM – we celebrate with songs about beverages!

     

    A Classical Thanksgiving on WSMR 89.1 & 103.9

    Russell Gant, Bethany Cagle, and Tyler Kline will be your perfect Thanksgiving companions throughout Thanksgiving Day! As the smell of cooking turkey and yummy pie fills your home, we’ll be featuring the loveliest classical music with special pieces by American composers; music inspired by America; autumn and harvest selections; and familiar favorites. This year you’ll hear lovely arrangements of Copland’s “Down A Country Lane,” Grainger’s “Harvest Hymn,” Mark O’Connor’s “Americana Symphony Variations on Appalachia Waltz,” and Chabrier’s “Prelude Pastorale.”

    Listen for these selections along with many more classical treats for your holiday table. Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Classical WSMR 89.1 & 103.9!

    Thanksgiving Day, 11am-12pm: Every Good Thing

    Andrea Blain and classical music fans from all around the country take some time to give thanks and celebrate one of life’s most meaningful gifts: music. It’s \”Every Good Thing” — an hour of stories and music to celebrate Thanksgiving.

    Thanksgiving Evening, 8-10pm: Giving Thanks: 

    Giving Thanks brings music and stories together for thoughtful reflection on the meaning of the holiday. Whether you’re up early in the kitchen, or relaxing after the feast, Giving Thanks provides the perfect atmosphere for Thanksgiving: the warmth of great music, and truly memorable words.

    Sunday 11.29.20, 10am-2pm: Sunday Baroque

    “Eat your bread with joy, drink your wine with a merry heart,” goes the saying. And music provides a perfect accompaniment – it’s icing on the cake and nourishment for the soul. On this Thanksgiving holiday weekend, the menu includes a variety of banquet music by baroque composers, including dances Michel-Richard Delalande composed for the King to enjoy as he ate supper, and musical banquet suites from the early 17th century. Host Suzanne Bona will also reveal her picks for your holiday gift list – with pieces auditioned Thanksgiving weekend and for the rest of the year!
