Pull up a chair and fill up your plate for a mix of Thanksgiving history and music on this episode of Southern Songs and Stories. We celebrate the holiday with some of the fascinating history of the events surrounding its beginnings and how it evolved, with a focus on all the great food on our tables, especially here in the South, and some music on the side.
Pumpkins have been a staple of Thanksgiving feasts since the time of the Pilgrims
