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.

    Unfortunately, military members and their families serving overseas are not permitted to listen to Pandora.
