WKU Public Radio has a wonderful day of special programs set for Thanksgiving Day. Some have become holiday traditions, while others will be heard for the first time.
Here is our complete Thanksgiving Day rundown:
Ties that Bind: Stories of Love and Gratitude from the First Ten Years of StoryCorps (Thanksgiving Day at 9 am central, 10 eastern)
Radio producer Dave Isay had an idea that something was missing from the American historical pantheon, and in 2003, he founded StoryCorps to capture the quintessential American voice, telling the invaluable American story. His mission was simple, to give all Americans the opportunity to record, share and preserve the stories of their lives. Since then, with two airstream trailers traveling across the country, the StoryCorps team has collected over 45,000 stories from 90,000 participants. All are preserved at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
