(linecon0)

By definition, the term holiday means a time of rest and relaxation. With the holiday season upon us, many of us will be sharing that leisure time with family and friends. Some of us may have even taken advantage of the highly contentious early arrival of holiday shopping that may soon become its own seasonal custom.

On this week'’s program host Terrance McKnight honors the longstanding tradition of family gatherings with recordings by family ensembles and music related to feasts and friendship.
