Public Radio stations have the option in 2019 for a syndicated show called "Science & Thanksgiving."

From the webpage:


Thanksgiving usually means we’re going big — way over the top. Twice the size bird we could possibly eat. More side dishes than the table can hold, and of course, so much pie. We travel great distances to see our families and friends — we hug, we eat, we argue, and we nap. On this special episode of The Pulse, we explore the traditions and rituals of Thanksgiving through a scientific lens. We hear stories about the neuroscience of gratitude — and how it can help us through grief; the environmental impact of our holiday feasts, from cranberries to food waste; and ask whether turkeys are really as dumb as they look...

Public Radio stations have the option in 2019 for a syndicated show published in two hours, perhaps for separate air times, called "Musical Thanksgiving Feast."

From the webpage:


Musical Thanksgiving Feast (Hour 1)
What do you get when you combine the best food-centric songs from Jazz and Pop Standards legends? You get a Musical Thanksgiving Feast, honoring the theme of America's most delicious holiday: Thanksgiving!

Food themed songs by Anita O'Day, Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, Wes Montgomery, Dave Frishberg, Nat King Cole and many others take your listeners through the menu for the big day. From breakfast to the main meal, tasty appetizers to sweet treats for dessert, host Jim Raposa serves a one hour, multi-course feast for your ears. Special guests offer insight and thanks for their career milestones such as Quincy Jones, Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney.


Musical Thanksgiving Feast (Hour 2)

What do you get when you combine more of the best food-centric songs from Jazz, Soul, Rock and Pop Standards legends? You get A Musical Thanksgiving Feast – Hour 2, honoring the theme of America's most delicious holiday: Thanksgiving! With the success of A Musical Thanksgiving Feast (Hour 1), we decided to produce a second hour.

Run the hour you want or run them both back-to back!



Hour two features food themed songs by Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Nina Simone, the cast of Oliver!, Ray Charles, James Taylor, The O’Jays, Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole and many other artists, who’ll take your listeners through the musical menu for the big day.

All the ingredients for the soundtrack of Thanksgiving with music that’s perfect for the main meal, tasty appetizers to sweet treats for dessert. Host Jim Raposa serves up a multi-course feast for your listeners ears. Special hour two guest interviews include Joey Dee of the group Joey Dee and the Starlighters who hit it big with a food themed dance called “Peppermint Twist” and an incredibly rare interview with the legendary Nat King Cole.



If your station incorporates Jazz, Rock or Standards in your specialty music programming, A Musical Thanksgiving Feast Hour 2, will satisfy even the heartiest musical appetite of your listeners.
