It's nearly Thanksgiving here in the good ol' USA, a holiday in which we give thanks for massive amounts of food and, incidentally, for everything else good in our lives. It's a long story, but it all started with Henry VIII and his break from the Catholic Pope in the late 1500s, because the Pope wouldn't approve of his divorce from Catherine of Aragon so that he could marry Anne Boleyn. This made all sorts of folks leave the Kingdom for religious freedom, including all those guys who came over on the Mayflower. Along with the native Americans already living here, they had the first Thanksgiving. 
That means that we directly trace our Thanksgiving celebrations back to, um, England. 
So that's why you should listen to a good helping of British music today on the England Swings show, where we play the best, brightest, newest, and coolest music from the UK! We're there at 6:00 p.m. ET, and can be found : 
In Northern Virginia : Cox and Verizon digital cable channel 37
In Reston, Virginia : Comcast channel 27
Anywhere else in the world : http://www.fcac.org/webr


And today, we'll say thanks with all kinds of new music, including tracks from Blood Red Shoes, Beady Eye (that's Oasis without Noel Gallagher), and James Blake. We'll also have some older tunes from Supertramp, Jackie Trent, and even Petula Clark. Plus : lots more music, old and new.We'll have our usual features, too :
