PLAYLIST FOR “MUSIC TO BE THANKFUL FOR” (11.25.17)

27 Nov

Time for the 8th Annual Music To Be Thankful For show, featuring music I’m thankful for and selections from some of the other broadcasters at WMNR, plus messages from three of the vocalists I admire most. And because this show always falls around my birthday, it was also the 8th Annual Family Night at Turntable For One with my wife and my son joining in. In short, a good time was had by all – especially me.
