We’ve offering a special Thanksgiving Do List for you this week, recorded at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts in Santa Rosa. Consider it a treat, like pie for breakfast.

My co-host, KQED Arts Senior Editor Gabe Meline, and I focused on how arts organizations are helping the community recover after the North Bay fires. That’s something to give thanks for, and we’re thankful you’re tuning in to our show via the radio and podcast.
