Thursday’s show will celebrate Dr. Robert Khayat and his new memoir, “60: A Year of Sports, Race, & Politics” (Nautilus Publishing). The book contains stories and anecdotes from the year 1960 when a then 22-year-old Khayat graduated from Ole Miss as a sports hero (Sugar Bowl winner, SEC champs in baseball) and got drafted into the NFL.

Musical guests for Thursday’s show will include classical musician Jiwon Lee and indie-rockers, Olympic Music.

Following Thursday’s season finale, the show will run past shows for re-broadcast throughout December and January. Live shows will resume Thursday, Feb. 3, 2022.
