This final chapter is out here a bit early because I am traveling for Thanksgiving myself.
My favorite shows to do are the Thanksgiving and Christmas ones.
I get to make a statement, send a message- as I have said before, music is my form of a Western Union telegram.
This episode definitely feels like Thanksgiving Day to me!
I'll start this finale off with a beautiful song by Lucy Kaplansky, with some noticeable help from Richard Shindell.
Then, saving the best for last, and calling in some heavy hitters on this topic, at least to me, two of the finest songs ever about Going Home.
And they just happen to share the same title.
After that, is there a Beatle song about Going Home? Sure is!
Finally, another one of those two different endings I do when I have two songs so exquisitely perfect for the task, I can't make up my mind.
The first one concerns Home being so fine, so desirable, you would run there.
The second...well of all the modes of transportation we have taken over the years, this is without a doubt the nicest way to go Home I can think of.
And even that wasn't enough, as I slipped in something else to hopefully surprise and delight you on my way out the door, regarding what we have learned these past two weeks through music.
While the Holiday and the Tradition may have started in this country, everybody has something to be thankful for, not the least of which is being alive and around to BE thankful!
I am most certainly grateful for those of you who listen and stick with me, with all my quirky choices of songs and theme shows.
I THANK YOU!
And Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
