Giving Thanks

 With music and stories for Thanksgiving, it's Giving Thanks. New for 2015, two special guests: an artist in the kitchen, and an artist at the piano:  Christopher Kimball, founder, editor, and publisher of Cook's Illustrated Magazine, and host of public television most-watched cooking show, America's Test Kitchen.  He’ll take us to his Vermont farm for a New England Thanksgiving, and talk about the experiences for which he’s most grateful.  Stephen Hough, world famous concert pianist, composer, prize-winning poet, and MacArthur genius. He’ll share his wonderful essay “Thanksgiving for Thanksgiving” which he wrote for the London Telegraph, and we’ll hear an excerpt from his favorite Thanksgiving author Willa Cather, plus his new Grieg album.  Also, Patrick Stewart reads autumn poems from John Keats and Antonio Vivaldi  This is the one-hour version of Giving Thanks, which is geared towards news and talk formats.  (For the original two-hour version that  maintains the high proportion of music, please subscribe to: "Giving Thanks: A Celebration of Fall, Food, & Gratitude Two Hour Version" - Program ID: 3994860.)  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.
