The Beatles BBC Special for Thanksgiving

The Beatles BBC Radio Special, produced by Kevin Howlett will be aired on the Thanksgiving weekend in USA. We've been trying to locate a radio station who is broadcasting it, and found Rock 92.1 WBIK FM, which is a commercial classic rock radio station licensed to Pleasant City, Ohio. Here's a link to their announcement: The Beatles BBC Special for Thanksgiving. The program will feature interviews with Paul, George and Ringo, reminiscing about their BBC radio days. According to Howlett, the McCartney interview was taped this summer. The show will be streamed online at 9am (EST) at Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 28th from this URL. You can also listen to the station by visiting Tune-In Radio online or download the Tune-In Radio APP for your phone of tablet or from iTunes or the Google Play Store.
Meanwhile today, NPR are broadcasting a Howlett interview during their NPR Fresh Air with Terry Gross show.
Sunday on the Beeb itself, Bob Harris presents a Beatles Special during his near three hours long show, as detailed (or rather, not) here. This MAY be the same Howlett production as the one at Thanksgiving, Stateside.
