Join us Thankgiving Day,  Thursday the 26th for holiday programs -

9am - Arlo Guthrie and "Alice's Restaurant"

"Alice's Restaurant" is one of  Arlo Guthrie's most prominent works, based on a true incident from his life that began on Thanksgiving Day 1965 with a citation for littering, and ended with the refusal of the U.S. Army to draft him because of his conviction for that crime - a KRCC staple for Turkey Day.

10am to noon - "Turkey Confidential" with Lynne Rossetto Kasper

Help is on the way for Thanksgiving cooks, kitchen helpers and dinner guests. Lynne Rossetto Kasper, host of "The Splendid Table," will be available to answer listener questions throughout the live, two-hour program. Past shows have included a cross-country trucker cooking his Thanksgiving dinner on the manifold and a panicked first-time cook who didn't realize a turkey needs to be thawed.  

1pm to 2pm - "The Sporkful: Thanksgiving is for Eaters"

Mo Rocca and Amy Sedaris share tips for holiday entertaining, covering everything from what music to play to mediating family disputes. NY Times Magazine drinks columnist Rosie Schaap brings Dan to her bar, where she offers the perfect cocktail for a fall day in the kitchen (pro tip: not too many!). Radiolab’s Robert Krulwich discusses the economics of leftovers and tells the story of the time a turkey tried to put the moves on his wife. On The Media’s Brooke Gladstone takes Dan into her kitchen to teach him how to make her trademark Thanksgiving dessert, a Mennonite dish with saltines in it.

2pm to 3pm  - "Dinner Party Download - All Foods Episode"

To celebrate Thanksgiving (and, even better, leftovers!) it’s our annual All Food Special. Featuring: Perfection on a sushi plate … Hot, spicy, and festive horseradish … Filmmaker Jim Jarmush gets corny … Jimmy Buffet makes an indie rocker cry … Trendy Filipino flavors  … Obsessive food Instagramming … A glimpse inside a restaurant kitchen … And the ‘Delicious’ life of Ruth Reichl.

aaaaaand, to get you ready for Christmas and Black Friday Madness on Friday the 27th from 2pm to 3pm -

"Marketplace Takes Care of Holiday Business".

The Marketplace Weekend team looks at where the holidays meet money. Host Lizzie O'Leary is joined by some of APM's biggest names to explore that intersection, tell some stories, and help you financially navigate the holiday season.
