Holiday Programming from HPR

KIPO 89.3

11/25 Thanksgiving Day

6:00 am The Splendid Table’s Turkey Confidential

A funny, gravy-spattered special with Lynne Rossetto Kasper, award-winning host of public radio’s national food show The Splendid Table®.

5:00 pm Giving Thanks with John Burge

A music-and-stories celebration of Thanksgiving. Host John Birge creates a thoughtful, contemporary reflection on the meaning of the holiday—perfect for broadcast while families gather at the table to share common blessings. Deepak Chopra, celebrated writer on spirituality and wellness, and Nigella Lawson, British food writer who appears on NPR's Morning Edition, BBC television, and the Food Network, are featured. Classical music is the heart and soul of Giving Thanks, and this year's selections include Simple Gifts from Yo-Yo Ma, a hymn of Thanksgiving from Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony, the autumnal lyricism of Mark O'Connor's American Seasons, and a cornucopia of Bach. Between the music, it's a contemporary celebration of spirit of Gratitude.

Christmas with BBC Radio Leeds

West Yorkshire gets to celebrate Christmas in style this year as BBC Radio Leeds comes to Bradford Cathedral for a special Christmas Service.

Introduced by BBC Radio Leeds presenter Andrew Edwards and the Dean of Bradford Cathedral, the Very Rev Dr David Ison, the service is open to everyone.

The service takes place on Monday 6 December at 7pm.

Andrew Edwards said: "For some people it's the first mince pie, for me this is THE sign Christmas is really here."

Something special

From seasonal readings to Christmas carols, from brass band music to Bradford Cathedral Choir, this year's BBC Radio Leeds Christmas Service will be something special.

Hammonds Saltaire band, formerly known as the Hammonds Sauce Works Band, will accompany some of the carols as well as performing a selection of their own Christmas favourites.

BBC Radio Leeds presenters Liz Green, Richard Staples, Katherine Hannah and David Hoyle will be at the lectern to give Christmas readings.

Sing Live! - who have also played at the Vatican, the Royal Albert Hall and on a cruise ship in Alaska - will perform, fresh from a concert at the Disney World resort in Florida.

Christmas celebrations

This is a wonderful opportunity to join us and sing your heart out in one of my favourite West Yorkshire churches."
Andrew Edwards, BBC Radio Leeds

Host Andrew Edwards said he was particularly happy to be in Bradford for BBC Radio Leeds' Christmas celebrations.

He said: "I am delighted that we are the guests of Bradford Cathedral this year.

"I am currently presenting my afternoon show from our studios at the National Media Museum, and have spent many years broadcasting here in Bradford.

"I remember very fondly our special outside broadcast from the Cathedral a few years ago when the Queen came to present the Maundy money here."

At the centre of the BBC Radio Leeds Christmas service will be reminders of the true meaning of the season, with the Dean of Bradford Cathedral, the Very Rev Dr. David Ison, conducting prayers and giving a short address.

Favourite carols

Those taking part will also be able to blow away the cobwebs with the chance to sing favourite carols like Once In Royal David's City, O Come All Ye Faithful and Hark The Herald Angels Sing.

Andrew Edwards said everybody was invited to attend the BBC Radio Leeds Christmas Service at Bradford Cathedral on Monday 6 December.

He said: "Recording the BBC Radio Leeds Christmas Service is always one of the highlights of the broadcasting year for me.

"This is a wonderful opportunity to join us and sing your heart out in one of my favourite West Yorkshire churches."

The Christmas Service will be recorded and can be heard on BBC Radio Leeds (92.4 FM) on Christmas Eve at 7pm and again at noon on Christmas Day.

If you would like to take part in the service, please make sure you are at Bradford Cathedral in plenty of time before 7pm on Monday 6 December as the event will start promptly and latecomers will not be allowed in to the recording.

Broadcasts can be listened to "live." Earlier programs can also be played from their "iplayer" web page.

Other BBC radio feeds are also available from the menu on the left-side of this web page (BBC1, BBC2, BBC3, etc).
