Why Thanksgiving?

From Barry Vogel | Part of the Radio Curious series | 28:40

Why is it that Thanksgiving is celebrated almost exclusively in the United States and Canada. How has it been celebrated and how is it celebrated now?

Radio-curious-logosmall_small

Professor Hugo Freund teaches Social and Behavioural Sciences at Union College in Barbourville, Kentucky and visits with us about the roots of Thanksgiving beginning in the 1600's, in what is now the north-eastern United States, through to it's role as a gathering of friends and family without sectarian religious direction. The program was recorded in 2002 at the Annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association in New Orleans, Louisiana in the lobby of a rather noisy hotel. It was first broadcast in 2009 after most of the hotel's background rumble could be electronically hushed. We began our conversation by discussing how the comtemporary concept of Thanksgiving is acknowledged.

The book Hugo Freund recommends is "The Popes Against The Jews: The Vatican's Role In The Rise Of Modern Anti-Semitism," by David I. Kertzer.

Liven Up Thanksgiving With Cranberry Fun Facts

From WCAI / WNAN | 48:43

Can't talk about politics or religion at Thanksgiving dinner? No problem. Talk about cranberries, instead.

Cranberry-info0_small It’s a staple of our modern Thanksgiving feasts: The cranberry. Cranberry sauce probably wasn’t part of the first Thanksgiving, but the berry has long been used to repel infections. Not surprisingly, cranberry cultivation has changed significantly over the past two centuries. Now, the iconic fruit faces its greatest challenge from climate change. The history and future of the cranberry – plus some great recipes, on Living Lab. 

Guest: Susan Playfair is author of the new book “America’s Founding Fruit: The Cranberry in a New Environment.”

Pilgrim Fathers: How the Thanksgiving We Know and Love was Manufactured

From Hold That Thought | 14:52

Historian Mark Valeri examines the truths about the first Thanksgiving and the myths of American identity we have created around the event.

Heritagethe-first-thanksgiving-at-plymouth-by-brownscombeb_small

Thanksgiving is a day most Americans look forward to, feasting on delicious food with friends and family. However, the rosy picture we have in our minds of our Pilgrim forefathers sitting down to eat with their Native American friends is not quite accurate. In honor of the holiday, American religious historian Mark Valeri shares the true and harrowing tales of the Pilgrim immigrants, and how and why their story came to national prominence in the post-Civil War era. He also examines how the myth of that first Thanksgiving has taken root in the American identity, and the revisions the story has undergone through the decades.

This arrangement features Christopher Parkening with the L.A. Chamber Orchestra, led by Paul Shure.

 

One of early 19th Century Vienna’s most celebrated virtuosos was Mauro Giuliani. Pepe Romero performs his Guitar Concerto #2 with the Acad. Of St. Martin In-The-Fields, Neville Marriner conducting.

New York-based classical/jazz guitarist/lutenist performs his setting of Psalm 100, the Psalm of Thanksgiving, with flutist Jayna Nelson. Contemporary Brazilian composer/performer Paulo Bellinati wrote his Chuva e Mar, or Rain & Sea, as a musical depiction of a storm over the ocean. The piece is dedicated to another Brazilian composer, Heitor Villa-Lobos.  Closing the program is Ronald Ravenscroft/John & B.J.
