Giving Thanks

  • Fred Vigeant

Join us for a two-hour special Giving Thanks Thanksgiving from 12pm to 2pm on WITF. Each year on Thanksgiving Giving Thanks shares music and stories that reflect the meaning of gratitude.

Special guests for 2021:

  • Stanley Tucci joins our Thanksgiving table to talk about his new book Taste: My Life Through Food, a memoir about food, family, and life – and his classic foodie films Big Night and Julie & Julia.
  • Naomi Shihab Nye shares her poems celebrating her Palestinian-American heritage, and our shared humanity.

Giving Thanks sounds the way Thanksgiving feels: inviting, warm, and festive. No clichés about pilgrims and pumpkin pies. Instead, it’s a contemporary, thoughtful celebration of spirit of the holiday. Music from Eric Whitacre, Bach, Copland and more complete the scene.

Giving Thanks broadcasts Thanksgiving November 25 from 12pm to 2pm on WITF 89.5 & 93.3 or through your smart speaker, ask it to “Play WITF Radio.” This special repeats later in the day from 8pm to 10pm. You can also hear the program on-demand hereGiving Thanks is part of a full day of special programming on WITF for Thanksgiving. More information…
