The Flowing Waters of Lake Jefferson

Saturday October 10, 2009: Canadians - Part One

Welcome to the member-funded, hydro-powered, volunteer-run studios of WJFF.  Thanks to staff and station management for accommodating my health issues and maintaining a chemical and fragrance free environment. Complying with these accommodations allow me to continue to volunteer Saturday mornings.
Folk Plus is a mostly lyrically and theme based show of contemporary singer-songwriters, some older cuts and perhaps a spoken word or broadway entry, all based on a theme.
 The station's website and stream are online at WWW.WJFFRADIO.ORG

It is Thanksgiving in America next month, and Columbus day this weekend. But in Canada it is Thanksgiving this weekend.  On January 31, 1957, the Canadian Parliament proclaimed: “ A Day of General Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed … to be observed on the 2nd Monday in October.
Thanksgiving Day (Canadian French: Jour de l'Action de grâce) is an annual Canadian holiday to give thanks at the close of the harvest season.
