It can be hard to put feelings into words, but this time of year chances are good that someone has written a song that says exactly what the holiday season means to you. Familiar melodies can transport you through time as music we love is intertwined with memory, and holiday music in particular can evoke strong emotion.
This hour on Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe talks with Dan Knight, a Steinway artist, a pianist and a composer as he plays holiday songs requested by listeners in exchange for a holiday memory. Knight is a native Iowan who currently lives in North Carolina. He is a performing artist in the dance department at the University of North Carolina.
