APM Celebrates is our unique package of programs for holidays and more. From annual listener favorites like The Splendid Table's "Turkey Confidential", to classical music specials, to new offerings that explore everything from transportation trends to personal history and grief, APM Celebrates offers something for every audience and occasion.
