Here’s what’s on tap for WXPN’s Thanksgiving Programming
Kid…we realize you’ve got a busy day ahead of you on Thursday, whether you’re spending Thanksgiving cooking dinner for family and friends, or you’re stuck at work or otherwise separated from the ones you love.
Maybe you’re on an epic trip from New York to Kansas to Chicago with a gregarious co-traveler. Maybe you’re watching law enforcement take 27 eight-by-twenty seven eight-by-ten color glossy photographs with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each one was.
Pop cultural references aside, we here at WXPN hope to make your day as stress free as possible, and we’ll do that the best way we know how: through music. Here’s a run-down of what you’ll hear on our airwaves and webstream from the crack of dawn to the late night hours on Thanksgiving. Listen all day at 88.5 FM in Philadelphia, or XPN.org anywhere there’s an internet connection!
