Christmas

We begin this week with a call from Ann, from Winchester, “I just want to thank you for your excellent programming.  If I’m in the car, I’m listening to WEKU and, most of those days in conversation over dinner, I will comment on some sort of news that I heard on NPR."

After a very difficult growing season, sales of live Christmas trees this holiday season are a reason to celebrate for a Richmond area farmer.

At this time of the year, we tend to focus on celebrations of our own religions or cultures. But the winter holidays can also bring people of differing backgrounds together.


On this week’s EST,  we’ll discuss ways to enjoy the  “most wonderful time of the year” while including the traditions and customs of those unlike our own.

 

Kentucky Proud Holidays on Eastern Standard

Nov 16, 2016
Grant Willoughby

With the holiday season in full swing, this week's Eastern Standard will be devoted to Kentucky Proud-specific holidays. The mantra of "buy local" is something many hear often these days, and as it turns out Kentucky has a lot of great local brands to offer. Not surprisingly, there is quite a bit more made in the commonwealth other than bourbon and beer cheese!

Guests on this week's show include:

As usual, we have a full and varied line-up programming for Thanksgiving, Hanukah, Christmas and New Year's for both WEKU and Classic 102.1.   Click here for the listening and access to a downloadable version of the schedule.

Plus, we have sponsorships available for businesses and other organizations.  For more information, call 859-622-7270 or email john.hingsbergen@eku.edu.
