PLAYLIST FOR “6TH ANNUAL MUSIC TO BE THANKFUL FOR SHOW” (11.28.15)

30 Nov

This is always a special show for me because I invite a number of my broadcasting colleagues at the radio station to play music for which they’ve been thankful during the past year. I think it makes all of us at the station even more thankful for the opportunity to play music we love for our audiences. (For more info about the broadcasters, go to wmnr.org) And because this show always comes around my birthday, I’m also joined every year in the studio and on the air by the people I am most thankful for – my wife and my son.
