11/24: "Alice's Restaurant" on Boston Radio

Since it's probably been at least a year since you've listened, you might want to tune in on Turkey Day.


9am, Noon, 4pm
"Alice's Restaurant Massacree": Thanksgiving Broadcast
at WZLX (100.7 FM)

Also on WUMB-FM (91.9 FM) at 9am and noon. Other stations may play it, but these two have it easily found on their websites.

Way back in 1965, Arlo Guthrie celebrated Thanksgiving out in Great Barrington, Mass. Since hippies were typically oppressed by "The Man", he and a friend were 'arrested for littering' when they couldn't find a good place to put the preprandial rubbish.

This is his amusing musical statement that runs more than 18 minutes, so it may be the longest Thanksgiving song ever -- except when Guthrie performs a longer version...

I did actually listen last year, and I smiled a lot and giggled quite a bit.

If you don't want to wait for the radio -- or pay for it -- I've included two clips of the whole thing. Pretend you're flipping the record over.
