PLAYLIST FOR “9TH ANNUAL MUSIC TO BE THANKFUL FOR” SHOW (11.24.18)

25 Nov

This is a special show I wait for every year. In addition to presenting some of the music I’ve been thankful for during the past year, I ask some of my fellow broadcasters to record a brief intro for their choices, because it’s also “Family Night At Turntable For One,” so my wife and son offer their choices, plus I ask a few of my favorite singers to tell my audience about a song or singer they’re thankful for. This year it was Kellye Gray, Heather Bambrick, Diane Marino, and Mark Winkler.
