This Thanksgiving, WQXR is saying a big 'Thank You!' to all the listeners who participated in The Gratitude Project.
We asked, and you answered. Over the last four weeks, more than 600 of you responded to our call for submissions of the music for which you are most grateful. You were kind enough to share your stories with us, as well.
All Thanksgiving weekend, we will be playing your selections. Please tune in to listen for the piece you requested.
