I won’t be home for Thanksgiving this year. It’s happened before, missing the big family gathering along with all those special foods prepared for the occasion.
Instead, I’ll be hosting a Thanksgiving Day edition of Closer to the Edge, an outstanding Progressive music radio show on Asheville FM (WSFM-LP, 103.3). I feel honored to have been asked to substitute for host JD, the “Professor of Prog” while he takes a well-earned holiday break.
For three hours, from 2:00 to 5:00 pm (Eastern) on Thanksgiving Day I’ll be serving up some of the best in classic Prog music for the main course, garnished with a healthful helping of contemporary selections. We’ll begin with an Hors D’oeuvre (served with mathematical precision) and progress through each subsequent course until Supper’s Ready.
I’ll be spinning some delicious classic dishes from the likes of Touch, Wishbone Ash and the Moody Blues, followed by fresh desserts from Anathema and others. There may even be something special from Wisconsin for all you cheeseheads.
So tune in Thanksgiving Day, November 23, at 2:00 pm EST to hear me, Joey Books, take over as guest chef on Closer to the Edge. You can stream it live on AshevilleFM.org by clicking on the “Listen Live” button. Join me for a truly Progressive Thanksgiving dinner!
