Giving Thanks :: Music For Living :: Vol. 4

tgif_mixtape.jpgMuch as Pandora is specifically an American radio service (at least for now), Thanksgiving is specifically an American holiday. It’s a day that celebrates the diplomatic gesture of peacemaking between cultures, and it reminds us that we’re all a part of something much larger than ourselves.
We all have reasons to be thankful: for our health, for our families and friends, for our jobs if we’re fortunate enough to be employed, and for any number of other blessings.
As Americans, however, we can also look at this day as an opportunity to be thankful for being Americans, and as a chance to thank those families who sacrifice on our behalf. Without military families — not just those in the armed forces, but also their relatives, who move from base to base with or without the servicemen and servicewomen they love — this grand American experiment in multicultural democracy and free speech simply wouldn’t work.
This week’s station is a party station, and it’s all about being Thankful. The station is based in soul and funk music; both are styles of music that Americans helped bring to the world. Turn it up, dish up some more stuffing, and let’s bring those troops home safely. Happy Thanksgiving, everybody.

  1. I’m thankful for so many things and now I’m thankful for Pandora that allowed me to listen to Triumvirat again. I’m still not sure how to or if I can listen to individual tracks within an album but regardless this is a great thing you’ve developed. Music helps us to be more healthy so thanks for making me feel better!! :)

  2. Pandora is going to be my “go to” site for music. Just got high speed Internet and someone guided me to Pandora. I love it! I’ll probably spend too much time exploring all the options!

  3. The most important thing in life to be thankful for is your family and everyone who cares for you in life not just for your money or personality. Its whats on the inside not the outside that really matters in life about people.

  5. I am thankful for a lot of things such as; God being the head of my life, my family,school,love ones, friends, and especially the awesome man that He has blessed me with.

  6. Thank YOU, everybody! Thanks for tuning in. I’m delighted that you are enjoying the “Giving Thanks” station as much as I am — I found it went very well with the green bean casserole and cranberry sauce.

  7. Pandora is wonderful…thanks for making it available….still learning, but loving the additions you find to match the artist I’ve chosen!

  8. Tim? From Oakland…
    The welcome note is very clever; the programming is ver very good; overall, you people have an excellent thing going. I plan to pay a lot more attention to this spot on my IPod.
    Thanks for everything. Let me know if there’s anything I can do from this end of the earbud.

  9. The advertisements are a real drag. Pandora sold out. Never enough profits to be had. Check out grooveshark if you want to listen to music and not advertisements.
