Happy Thanksgiving!

To all of our American listeners, hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with family and large portion sizes.  For non-American listeners, today is Thanksgiving in America so please visit our country to join the stampede of shoppers looking for 4K TVs at midnight.

Jack E. posted a suggestion that we discuss "Alice's Restaurant Massacree" by Arlo Guthrie which is apparently a Thanksgiving song now.  I didn't have time to fit in a full episode (maybe next year, Jack!).  Strangely enough, I did actually do an oral report on the song as part of a project looking at protest songs of the Vietnam War.  According to Mr. Guthrie the song isn't specifically an anti-war song either, but he seemed happy that it had become associated with Thanksgiving.

With that in mind, relax from eating turkey by checking out this video of Arlo Guthrie performing "Alice's Restaurant Massacree".  It's even got footage from the movie!
