Thanksgiving Day Programming on Radio IQ and WVTF Music

The Splendid Table’s “Turkey Confidential” noon-2 pm on Thanksgiving Day on Radio IQ

Thanksgiving is full of high expectations, a huge menu and a house full of guests – which can make for a stressful day or two in the kitchen. That’s why holiday cooks, hosts and eaters tune into The Splendid Table’s “Turkey Confidential” on Thanksgiving morning. A holiday tradition in kitchens (and cars) from coast to coast, the show gives cooks an open line to host Francis Lam – providing turkey triage for public radio listeners on the day they need it most – Thanksgiving.

"Giving Thanks" Thanksgiving Day 2-4 pm on WVTF Music

With music and stories for Thanksgiving, host John Birge creates a thoughtful, contemporary reflection on the meaning of the holiday. Classical music is the heart and soul of the original Giving Thanks. Between the music, no clichés about pilgrims and pumpkin pies. Instead, it's a contemporary celebration of the spirit of Gratitude. Whether your listeners are early in the kitchen, on the road to a family gathering, or relaxing after the feast, Giving Thanks provides the perfect atmosphere for Thanksgiving: the warmth of great music, and truly memorable words.

"Every Good Thing" Friday, November 25, 4-5 pm on WVTF Music

This Thanksgiving, host Elena See and classical music fans from around the country take time to give thanks and celebrate one of life's most meaningful gifts: music. Audiences will hear listeners from across the U.S. share stories about their favorite classical music pieces.
